College Football – Michigan and Notre Dame Clash In Historic Game

Posted on September 6, 2013 in Professional Sports News.

One of the historic rivalries in college football is renewed Saturday night as 17th-ranked Michigan hosts number-13 Notre Dame at the “Big House.”

With the Fighting Irish locked into conference commitments with a future move to the ACC, Notre Dame is dropping Michigan from its schedule after next season.

That means this will be Notre Dame’s final trip to Ann Arbor in the foreseeable future.

The Irish canceled scheduled games with the Wolverines from 2015-17.

Michigan will be looking to avenge a 13-6 loss in South Bend last season in which it committed six turnovers, including five interceptions.

U-of-M opened this season with a 59-9 pasting of Central Michigan, while Notre Dame disposed of Temple, 28-6.

Michigan leads the all-time series 23-16-and-1.

 

The Michigan State Spartans are home tomorrow afternoon when they host South Florida in college football action.

The Spartans are coming off a 26-to-13 win over Western Michigan last week.

The offense kinda struggled, but the defense was stellar, having two interceptions returned for touchdowns.
