In a pouring rain, at Notre Dame, Michigan will try to answer many many questions. Can the offense move the ball in a consistent manner? Can the defense put in another strong performance? Can they feed Charlie Weis' words to him? Can they win three in a row in this series?
Answers, the defense will play another strong game and face facts, the Notre Dame offense is putrid. Add to this fact the game is expected to be played in a downpour which should limit what little offensive creativity the Irish possess. Special teams in bad weather are always critical. Early in the season even moreso. Thats coaching so we'll see where Michigan is at. We'd like to see Michigan throw deep once a couple more times a game. Back those corners off to open the short game and for wide runs.
Michigan's offense will have just enough to score two touchdowns, the defense will add a third and Michigan will come home 21-10 winners.
