I never imagined Notre Dame would be sitting 3-0 headed into the Michigan game, but they most certainly are undefeated headed into this game!

This Saturday evening's matchup of No. 11 Notre Dame and No. 18 Michigan will be a fight to the finish for sure. It marks the 40th installment of the storied rivalry, which the Wolverines lead 23-15-1 all-time.

The Fighting Irish are out for revenge this year, after losing to the Wolverines in heartbreaking fashion in the Big House last year by a score of 35-31. Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was unstoppable and led the Wolverines to a 28-point fourth-quarter comeback victory, after they trailed 24-7 entering the fourth quarter.

Last weekend, for the first time since October of 1983, Notre Dame defeated a Top 10 team during a night road game. The Irish defeated the Michigan State Spartan's in East Lansing by a score of 20-3, with the Spartans' only score coming on a 50-yard field goal late in the second quarter.

The Notre Dame defense dominated the Spartans and prevented Michigan State from entering the red zone for a full 60 minutes. The following detail is even more shocking ... the Irish defense limited the Spartans to only one snap past the 50-yard line during the second half. Here come the Irish indeed.
