Two disappointing teams from 2013 can set the tone for their 2014 campaign with a win over their rival in this important Week 2 game for both schools.

Last season the Wolverines beat the Fighting Irish 41-30 with both teams racing up over 400 yards of offense. That was a completely different situation than the 2012 game that neither team reached 300 yards with Notre Dame getting the 13-6 win with 239 total yards of offense.

The 2012 win by the Irish was the only loss in the yearly series for Michigan since 2008 with the Wolverines winning and covering the point spread in 4 of the 5 games.

In their last games Michigan beat Appalachian State 52-14 and Notre Dame beat Rice 48-17 with both teams getting the win against the betting line.

This season Notre Dame is 1-0 at home and the Michigan is 0-0 on the road.

Point Spread Pick

Last season's entire scale of work would have you on the Irish, but we're not so certain that Notre Dame is not primed for a big down turn this season. Michigan on the other hand is out to prove that last season's poor play is a thing of the past. Note that the Wolverines finished the regular season with 3 straight point spread covers and did win and beat the line last season back in Ann Arbour versus the Fighting Irish.
