NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH (0-1)
at MICHIGAN WOLVERINES (1-0)

Kickoff: Saturday, 8:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Notre Dame -3.5, Total: 55.5

Michigan will attempt to beat Notre Dame for the fifth time in six tries when the two schools clash on Saturday. Last year it was the Denard Robinson show, as the Michigan QB racked up a school-record 502 total yards (258 rushing, 244 passing) and three touchdowns in the 28-24 win in South Bend. Football lines.

While Michigan won a rain-shortened opener over Western Michigan 34-10, the Fighting Irish lost 23-20 at home to South Florida in a game that was delayed twice by the nasty weather. Tommy Rees will start at QB, replacing Dayne Crist. In the USF loss, Rees was much more effective (24-of-34, 296 yds, 2 TD) than Crist was (7-for-15, 95 yds, 0 TD). However, Rees threw two picks as his team had five turnovers, while opportunistic Michigan forced three turnovers in less than 45 minutes of action last week. The Wolverines are 5-1 at home against Notre Dame since 1997, scoring exactly 38 points in the past three home wins in the series. Until the Irish figure out a way to slow down Robinson, the pick here is MICHIGAN to win. Football betting lines.

The FoxSheets provide a four-star trend siding with the Wolverines.

Play On – Underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points (MICHIGAN) – in the first month of the season, after closing out last season with 2 or more straight losses, team that had a winning record last season. (30-6 over the last 10 seasons.) (83.3%, +23.4 units. Rating = 4*).

Notre Dame actually moved the ball very well against USF despite the final score, outgaining the Bulls 508 to 254. WR Michael Floyd was his typical unstoppable self, catching 12 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns. Junior Cierre Wood had 148 total yards (104 rushing, 44 receiving), gaining a healthy 5.0 yards per carry. The Irish also had some positive defensive efforts, holding USF to 3.0 YPC and a pitiful 2-for-14 on third-down conversions. NFL scores.

Michigan will win this game by rushing the football. Last week against Western Michigan, the team ran for 190 yards on just 26 carries (7.3 YPC). Sophomore Fitzgerald Toussaint had 11 carries for 80 yards and two touchdowns, while senior Michael Shaw capped the scoring with a 44-yard TD run. Robinson, who rushed for 46 yards on just eight carries, did a nice job spreading the ball around on offense. He only completed nine passes, but still found six different receivers. Roy Roundtree had a huge game last year against the Irish, catching eight passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.
