Notre Dame and Michigan will meet for the last time in the foreseeable future on Saturday night after the Fighting Irish announced they were ending the series in 2012, citing their future requirements as a pseudo-ACC team. There’s been a bunch of back-and-forth between the two sides about exactly how important the rivalry is and who’s chickening out and whatnot.

Then on Thursday, in the trolliest of troll moves, Notre Dame went ahead and announced a two-game series with Michigan’s biggest rival.

Notre Dame and Ohio State have met surprisingly few times, with only five meetings since 1935. Their last game came in the Fiesta Bowl after the 2005 season, a 34-20 Buckeyes win. The Fighting Irish and Michigan, on the other hand, have met 41 times and every year since 1997.

Ohio State’s future scheduling is ambitious, to say the least.
