Michigan 35, Notre Dame 31- Final

We're minutes away from the first night game in Michigan Stadium history, pitting the Fighting Irish against the Wolverine in the "Under the Lights" game.

To add a bit more flare to the already red-hot rivalry, both teams will be donning retro uniforms at the urging of Adidas.

Notre Dame is coming off a heartbreaking 23-20 loss to the Bulls of South Florida while Michigan is rolling in on the heels of a 34-10 victory over Western Michigan.

Tommy Rees has taken over as the starting quarterback for the Irish, and hopes to right Notre Dame's ship after the lackluster start.

Can the Irish contain Michigan's Denard Robinson?

Will the Wolverines' defense be able to shut down Notre Dame's high-octane offense?

We'll see the answers to those questions shortly.

Stay tuned to the blog for updates throughout the game!
