Amajor Battle of ranked teams will head to the battlefield as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish pay a visit to Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan to rumble with the Michigan Wolverines. The Fighting Irish won this game at home last year by a score of 24-17.
The Fighting Irish are off a hard-fought 30-27 home win over the USC Trojans. Notre Dame is now at 5-1 on the year and ranked 7th in the latest AP Poll. Notre Dame still has their sights set on getting into the playoffs, but they will have to win out to make that happen. They have a couple of pitfalls left. One is this game and the 2nd is a road game against Stanford at the end of November. The Irish need everything to break right for them to get into the playoffs, but still, they have a shot. The Irish are in the Top 15 in the nation in both scoring and points allowed. Can they keep rolling? We shall see.
This was supposed to be their year. The Michigan Wolverine had the Big 10 Title within reach, especially since Urban Meyer left Ohio State. Well, things don't always go as planned. The Wolverines are now 1-10 overall and 0-8 as an underdog when facing a top 10 team under Harbaugh. That is not good at all and they are facing another Top 10 team in this one. The Wolverines were down 21-0 last week to Penn State before making a game of it. They eventually fell by a score of 28-21. Can the Wolverine bounce back and more importantly can they beat a Top 10 team? I guess you'll just have to check back to find out.
