Rivalry Reanimated Final Thoughts

Hey folks, thank you for following my last series, focusing on some of the more famous rivalries that stopped being played in the 1980′s and 90′s.

Miami-Notre Dame

Series Record at time of cancellation (1990): Notre Dame led 15-7-1
Series Record of Reanimated Rivalry (1991-2016): Notre Dame leads 14-12
Combined All-Time Record: Notre Dame leads 29-19-1
Longest Miami win streak: 6 (1999-2005)
Longest Notre Dame win streak: 7 (2010-2016)

Notre Dame started out with such a big lead because they played Miami for a decade before the Hurricanes actually got good in the 80′s. Since The U’s first national title, the series has been very even. Miami actually leads since 1983, but just by a few games.
