To recap Lynn Henning's prediction for today's game:
Michigan-Notre Dame: This is a rougher call than was anticipated. A pre-season belief was that the Irish would have an edge in talent and in home-field passions and would beat U-M by a couple of touchdowns. After watching both teams last weekend, the call is closer. Notre Dame's defense will have a nastier time with Denard Robinson than it had last week with Purdue. But the Wolverines aren't going to dent the Irish the way they tore into a startlingly soft Connecticut. Notre Dame's offense is also better than Connecticut's, which helps explains Saturday's 7-point victory forecast for Brian Kelly's team.
As an extra bonus, he throws this completely gratuitous shot into his MSU prediction:
[F]or that matter, they're much better than Michigan, all because they have more weapons on both sides of the ball.
Yeah, I'd trade Denard straight-up for Cousins -- who wouldn't?
