A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Notre Dame and Michigan have agreed to resume their football rivalry.

The person says the Fighting Irish will host the Wolverines in 2018, and the series will shift to Michigan Stadium in 2019. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement hadn't been announced.

Notre Dame opted out of its series with Michigan in 2012, canceling games in 2015-2017. The Fighting Irish said at the time the move was a precaution as it began the process of a scheduling commitment to the ACC.

The storied series with the traditional college football powers dates to 1887.
