The Program: How Notre Dame's Front 7 Will Attempt to Stop Denard Robinson

Last season it seemed Notre Dame had Michigan beat when the Irish entered the fourth quarter up 24-7.

However, Denard Robinson would lead four touchdown drives, including a game-winning touchdown pass to Roy Roundtree with two seconds remaining that left the Irish wondering what happened in the final 15 minutes.

This year the Irish are favored again, and they will look to stop Michigan's win streak in this series at three. The team is full of players that endured that heartbreaking loss, especially on defense. Expect the Notre Dame defense to be even more focused on stopping Denard Robinson as a run and pass threat. The dynamic quarterback has been one of very few positives when it comes to Wolverines football, and whether the gang from Ann Arbor is going to win will largely be dependent upon him.

On offense the Fighting Irish will look to run the ball down Michigan's throat with their experienced offensive line.

It should be a fun one to watch, as Notre Dame looks to stay unbeaten and Michigan looks to get its first quality win of the year. In this edition of The Program, we look at how both teams look to move the ball and where some advantages are for each squad.
