Weber State Wildcats
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
South Carolina Gamecocks
New Mexico State Aggies
Another week, another slate of awesome games in college football! We know about the in-state games happening this weekend, the biggest one being the Texas-BYU game in Provo. The Utah State Aggies look to bounce back from their loss to the Utes last weekend by taking on Air Force. Utah has a much easier matchup as they take on the Weber State Wildcats. It should be another exciting weekend of college football in the Beehive State. For this weekend, I’m going to break my rule and add a local team to my list of 5 games that are must-see TV for football fans. Here they are:
1. #14 Notre Dame at #17 Michigan: Saturday 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN
This is the last scheduled meeting between these two football powerhouses so you can expect excellent play from both teams. Notre Dame knocked off Temple last week 28-6 and Michigan defeated Central Michigan 59-9. ND senior quarterback Tommy Rees had an excellent game by throwing for 346 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Owls. I know everyone is down o...
BEST OF MAXIM
Will Saturday night be the final game that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish play in Ann Arbor? It’s entirely possible.
(Check out the Michigan perspective here)
The Notre Dame-Michigan rivalry will be taking a “hiatus” beginning with the 2015 season that will last until at least 2017, and may not resume until after 2020, if ever. When Notre Dame agreed to join the ACC in...
ANN ARBOR, Mich. Every Notre Dame quarterback leaves a legacy.
As a senior who threw for 314 yards Saturday night but came up short in a 41-30 loss to the University of Michigan, Tommy Rees is running out of time to make a positive lasting impression. His legacy just might end up being that he was hard to love.
Despite scoring 30 points against what was expected to be a pretty...
Notre Dame and Michigan always promises to be an entertaining game — the two schools are currently squaring off in ESPN’s game of the week. Michigan took an early 10-0 lead on the Irish after a ridiculous play by Jeremy Gallon, but Tommy Rees has just responded with a pretty impressive touchdown drive.
Notre Dame put the ball in the end zone in a pretty unconventional way, however...
With the game on the line, Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees was driving his team down the field to try and make a come back win. With 1:28 left in the 4th quarterback, Rees threw into the end zone. The pass was deflected off of his own teammate, kicked and then intercepted by Michigan’s Black Countess.
This may be one of the whackiest plays you see all season!
Check out the video...
Michigan and Notre Dame are in the middle of a nice back and forth game right now. After Michigan WR Jeremy Gallon scored on a play that Notre Dame had no interest in tackling, Tommy Rees drove the team right back down the field for a score. Rees actually had a pass go right through RB George Atkinson III’s hands and directly into WR, T.J. Jones’ waiting hands. It looks like...
Tommy Rees took it on himself. He couldn't outplay Devin Gardner, and the Notre Dame defense couldn't stop the Michigan quarterback.
Gardner, wearing No. 98 to honor Michigan great Tom Harmon, threw four touchdown passes and ran for a score to lead No. 17 Michigan to a 41-30 win over No. 14 Notre Dame in front of an NCAA-record crowd of 115,109.
Rees threw the first of...
We all feel like crap, right? Good. Let's review the important facts.
"But what about those bogus Pass Interference calls?!?!?"
FACT: The Notre Dame defense gave up 41 points.
"Those Tommy Rees interceptions cost us the game!!!"
FACT: The Notre Dame defense gave up 41 points
I was in the stands last September as an emotional Notre Dame...
Roy Roundtree’s game-winning catch stunned Notre Dame in 2011.
There was little to be learned from either Notre Dame’s or Michigan’s opening-weekend wins. The Irish stomped an overmatched Temple team, while Michigan ran roughshod over Central Michigan. Those games were little more than prologues for Sept. 7.
The last Notre Dame-Michigan showdown at the Big House: an instant...
ANN ARBOR -- Tommy Rees, TJ Jones and Sheldon Day discuss Notre Dame's 41-30 loss to Michigan on Saturday night.
GoBlueWolverine.com reporter Josh Newkirk stops by to offer Irish fans five players to keep an eye on when Michigan attempts to stop Tommy Rees and the Notre Dame offense Saturday night.
The first one happened with Michigan with ball and complete control of the game. Devin Gardner of Michigan made what might be one of the worst plays in the history of college football. Lucky for him that the Wolverines won this game and this play can now be laughed at....
The second was from Tommy Rees and Notre Dame. With the Wolverines up 11 points last in the fourth...
In a thrilling back-and-forth affair at the Big House in Ann Arbor, the Michigan Wolverines prevailed, 41-30, handing Notre Dame its first regular season loss in the past two seasons. Notre Dame, trailing by 11 late in the fourth quarter, had a chance to get back within one score before Tommy Rees threw a terribly unlucky interception on the team’s final drive.
Crisis averted, Devin Gardner.
What would a rivalry be without head coaches verbally sparing just days before its contest? This is what big time college football brings to the table each week-along with the ESPN gameday crew to hype the day.Does anyone care if June Jones of SMU is going after Bob Davies of New Mexico?Everyone listens when its Holtz v. Bo or Akers v. Switzer.Its because of the teams and what is...

5. ESPN Waxes Poetic On Temporary End of ND/Michigan - Quite a few fine articles have been written this week by Irish leaning columnists who arm themselves with things like facts and history pertaining to the series. In the meantime - not one, but TWO, high profile...
We missed our weekly Gameday signs post last week, but we're back to show the best that the kids in Ann Arbor have come up with. Tweet us your favorites @DCoverageFB or send us your picks if you're at the Big House. We'll keep updating the post until Corso picks Notre Dame and sends us all to Miami...
