Will the Michigan Wolverine wide receivers expose the Notre Dame Fighting Irish secondary for a fourth straight season?

The Michigan Wolverines have gotten the better of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish the last three times the historic rivals have taken the field to face each other, including last season in the first primetime game at the Big House.

The Fighting Irish dominated the first three quarters of play, but could not finish the job and played one of the worst defensive quarters college football fans have ever seen. 

Michigan has won their last two games over the Air Force Falcons and UMass Minutemen after being blown out in their season-opener at Cowboys Stadium against the Alabama Crimson Tide. 

Meanwhile, the Fighting Irish dominated the Navy Midshipmen 50-10 in Dublin, Ireland to kick off their 2012 campaign, eked out a nail-biting 20-17 victory over the upstart Purdue Boilermakers and are coming off a 20-3 victory on the road over the Michigan State Spartans to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2002.

Will the Wolverines improve to 3-1 with a fourth straight victory over the Fighting Irish and send Notre Dame fans home trying to figure out what went wrong, or will Brian Kelly finally earn his first win over Michigan and establish his team as a legitimate contender to play in a BCS bowl game?

This slide show will detail the top five things the Wolverines must do in their upcoming clash with the Fighting Irish in order to leave Notre Dame Stadium victorious.
