Michigan safety Jordan Kovacs needs 11 more tackles to become the 15th Wolverines and first defensive back in school history to reach 300 career tackles. It’s time to start figuring out where he might end up on this list: Michigan Football’s all-time 10 best defensive backs

Denard Robinson needs 191 yards to pass Chad Henne and become Michigan Football’s career leader in total offense.

Denard Robinson has recorded a combined 944 yards of total offense in his last two games against Notre Dame.

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly on Denard Robinson: He’s a superior football player. He’s not a great player — he’s the best player on the field.”

Eleven of the last 21 Michigan-Notre Dame games have been decided by five points or less while only seven of the last 28 games have been won by more than 10 points.

The average margin of victory has been just 4.3 points over the span of the all-time series.

Michigan has defeated the Irish three straight times and the winning touchdown has been scored with under 27 seconds left in regulation on each occasion.

Senior running back Vincent Smith ranks 8th all-time at Michigan for career receiving yards by a running back (391).

ESPNs accuscore projects Notre Dame to win 28-26, teamrankings.com has the Irish winning 28-23. In my game preview, I picked Michigan to win 31-24.

Michigan’s Patrick Omameh has been selected to the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, honoring dedicated and hard-working student-athletes for their off-the-field achievements and selfless contributions to their communities.

Michigan linebacker Jake Ryan has notched a tackle for loss in 9 consecutive games.

Michigan has won 3 straight and 5 of the last 6 games against Notre Dame.

Last week, Michigan had 8 different players score a touchdown, it was the first time since 1949 that 8 or more Wolverines scored a TD.

Last week Taylor Lewan became U-M’s first offensive linemen to score a TD since 1948 (Bob Erben).

Michigan has 16 offensive plays of 20 or more yards this season.

Devin Funchess is tied for the Big Ten lead with 5 receptions of 20 yards or more.

Jordan Kovacs leads Michigan with 23 tackles, Thomas Gordon is second with 22, and Jake Ryan is third with 20.

Linebacker Desmond Morgan missed the UMass game with a head injury. He will play and start against Notre Dame. Morgan ranks 4th on the team with 15 tackles.

Notre Dame has not allowed a rushing touchdown this season.

Devin Gardner leads Michigan with 8 receptions for 155 yards. He also has a touchdown reception in all 3 games this season.

Denard Robinson is tied for the Big Ten lead with 11 completions of 20 yards or more.

Last week sophomre Raymon Taylor made his first career start at cornerback. ”Ray, you know, is making progress,” Brady Hoke said on Monday. “His technique is a little better, his fundamentals are a little better, his eyes are a little better, which are a big part. You play defensive back with your feet and your eyes — I think he’s learning that.”

Some Michigan students did a little redecorating at Notre Dame this week, see the video below
