Michigan vs. Notre Dame: Predicting Denard Robinson's Performance Against Irish

Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson is no stranger to the Big Blue-Fighting Irish rivalry.

In just his second career start with Michigan in his sophomore season, Robinson rushed for the game-winning touchdown with 27 seconds left on the clock, in a game where he combined for 502 yards and three touchdowns.

Last season, Robinson's Wolverines appeared destined for its first loss of the year, when they were trailing 24-7 entering the final quarter. After three unanswered Michigan touchdowns, however, they found themselves ahead 28-24 with just over a minute to play. Notre Dame managed to take the lead with 30 seconds remaining, but Shoelace led his squad 80 yards to score the game winning touchdown with two seconds left on the clock. Michigan won 35-31.

In Robinson's second go-around against the Fighting Irish, he torched them for 108 yards on the ground and 338 yards passing, to go along with four scores.

This Saturday marks the 40th chapter in the storied rivalry between the two schools with thick football tradition. It will be the first meeting where both teams are nationally ranked since 2005, and with playmaker Denard Robinson at no shortage of experience in 2012, we're in for a fun performance to watch. 

Let's break down what we can expect from Shoelace in his final matchup against the Fighting Irish.
