Who do you think will win the Michigan vs. Notre Dame football game?

By Pete Cunningham

Michigan football beat writer Kyle Meinke shared his five keys to victory for the Wolverines, but picked the Fighting Irish to win the game, 31-27.

There are plenty of reasons to believe Notre Dame will win, such as its performance against Michigan State last week and Michigan's six-year losing streak to ranked road opponents.

But there is also one big reason to believe the Wolverines will prevail: quarterback Denard Robinson's history against the Irish.

Notre Dame is favored by six points, but the real question is, who ya got?

The Spartans are horrible. NDs win over them was not impressive. Michigan will exploit the ND secondary and Denard will have huge runs. ND will not be able to keep matching Michigan scoring. Michigan by 10.

I hope Notre Dame wins and bruises a few UM egos along the way. It might help temper some of UM and AA's arrogance.

That's why you choose DirecTV. Much better than Dish.

I hope Denard gets lucky and Michigan wins so that when they play the Spartans their lost is more devastating!


Fri, Sep 21, 2012 : 7:44 p.m.

Final score 52-38 Michigan in a real defensive battle. Michigan will run every trick play in the book and some that aren't in the book. Napalm-What are you doing here?

Must've missed the fine print noting the poll was for the kuhl-aid drinkers only.


Fri, Sep 21, 2012 : 7:38 p.m.

My heart says Michigan but my brain says they have the defense to do it this year.

The brain wins every time

Once again a biased poll from the ever U of M centric (sigh) Please add my write-in vote as: "Don't care about the game or outcome, just glad its an being played in South Bend".

How is the poll biased? Do you mean the results?
