The Michigan Wolverines face the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Saturday night, Sept. 1, and here is all the info you need to watch.
Every year there are a few marquee matchups on opening weekend. The renewal of Michigan vs. Notre Dame college football rivalry this year is one of the biggest on the schedule. Both coaches, Brian Kelly and Jim Harbaugh, have a lot to prove this season. A win would be a major boost to either team’s playoff resume. Live stream the game with the links below to not miss a minute of the action.
Notre Dame has the latest win in this rivalry when they thrashed Michigan by a score of 31-0 in 2014. This year the Irish are led by Brandon Wimbush at quarterback. He has his limitations throwing the ball but his ability on the ground is what won him the job, the Irish offense is built to run the ball. The Michigan defense will be a tough test and Wimbush will need all of the help he can get. Losing Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey on the offensive line to the draft will be tough holes to fill.
Michigan’s defense will once again be one of the best in the country. Nine starters returned to the field on that side of the ball and they are hungry for success. Devin Bush is a key player for Jim Harbaugh this year at linebacker and he will be critical in shutting down Notre Dame’s attack.
ESPN’s College GameDay will be on scene broadcasting from Notre Dame’s campus Saturday morning. However, the game will be broadcast by NBC.
