Article is behind a paywall but here is the conclusion:
Neither defense stacks up very well in this matchup. Crist should be able to exploit the Wolverines' vulnerable secondary by spreading the ball around the field to his strong corps of weapons, including Floyd and Rudolph. Notre Dame should also find some balance on the ground. However, Michigan's offense is playing at a different speed with a confident Robinson as its triggerman. The Irish simply do not have the athletes or depth on that side of the ball to contend. As a result, we like Rodriguez's Wolverines in a shootout at South Bend.
Prediction: Wolverines 41, Fighting Irish 34
