Notre Dame Dialed In?
The Irish will be playing at home and that cannot be underestimated. In fact according to reports it is the hottest ticket in town for week one of the college football season. This means that the Irish will have plenty of fans in attendance for this game. The defense for the Irish improved drastically last season, especially against the pass. CB Julian Love is a ball hawk and ranked second nationally in both pass breakups (20) and total passes defended (23). With only a few losses, Notre Dame should be stocked with returning quality players on defense.

Although the Wolverines offense will be improved, expecting a big outcome in week one, could be asking too much, especially against a tough Irish defense. Brandon Wimbush will have to be consistent under center. Although he had a roller coaster season a year ago, he has looked vastly improved. The Fighting Irish make a huge statement with a big win in week one against the Wolverines.
