LAS VEGAS, NV- This is going to be the game of the week...Notre Dame marches into Ann Arbor to play in the Big House. The bands will be playing and the fans will be hooting and holloring.

That's all fine and good as it will be a great day of football in Michigan. This is a key game for both Head Coaches Rich Rodriguez of Michigan and Charlie Weiss of Notre Dame, both coming off blowout wins of teams that were sub par to the talent both of these teams have.

So I know your all wondering who I like here, lets face it these two are heated rivals now for some time. Always a tight game! This will be a great contest.

But I think one thing stands out here and that is the Notre Dame offense is much better than the Michigan Offense, since Weiss has taken over the offense. I really like Clausen as he has the big arm and the talent to lead the Irish who are no strangers to Ann Arbor to a visiting win...my final Notre Dame 31, Michigan 27.
