Michigan need a big win against Notre Dame on Saturday night. The Wolverines got just that, blowing out the Fighting Irish.

Jim Harbaugh's team shellacked Brian Kelly's squad, 45-14, to improve to 6-2 on the season. The Fighting Irish dropped to 5-2.

This was the last Michigan-Notre Dame matchup for a while (barring a bowl game or College Football Playoff showdown).

The Wolverines decided to send a message to the Fighting Irish following the win.

"Dear Notre Dame, we need to take a break. We’ve been doing this for a while now and we need our space. We’re glad we could end on good terms, thank you for not being defensive. Let’s keep in touch and maybe we’ll try again in 14 years if you’re still independent," the Wolverines tweeted.

Michigan and Notre Dame are set to meet again in 2033 and '34.

So, the Wolverines should get to cherish this one for a while.
