First up? Michigan's visit to Notre Dame)
When Notre Dame and Michigan get together this Saturday night in South Bend, two very conflicting emotions will be in place for Irish fans.
On the one hand, there is joy; Notre Dame is 3-0 for the first time in a decade (Yes, you read that correctly. For the first time since 2002, the Irish have won their first three games of the season). However, there’s also got to be concern; for whatever success the Irish have had in years past, Michigan has beaten the Irish in five of their last meetings.
As a matter of fact, if you want to know how ba...

This isn't Rivalry Week in Ann Arbor or South Bend.
For Notre Dame, that will always be Southern Cal, and the Wolverines worry first and foremost about "Ohio."
Both the Irish and Michigan also spend more time these days worrying about that school in East Lansing than they do on each other.
Still, it's Michigan vs. Notre Dame, and that's meant a lot special...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. AP -- Denard Robinson put up 397 yards of total offense and accounted for four touchdowns in No. 17 Michigan's 63-13 rout of Massachusetts on Saturday.
The season is now three weeks old, and the stats are proving what defensive coordinators have known for years.
