Michigan Vs. Notre Dame 2012: TV Schedule, Game Time, Spread And More

Notre Dame looks to end four-game losing streak to Michigan on Saturday.

Presswire

The No. 11 Notre Dame football team tries to move to 4-0 against No. 18 Michigan at 6:30 p.m. CT Saturday on NBC.

If the Irish are going to remain undefeated, they'll have to figure out a way to contain Michigan's Denard Robinson. Robinson has more than 800 combined rushing and passing yards in the last two games, both Michigan wins.

Notre Dame's defense is coming off a strong performance against Michigan State, holding the Spartans to just 3 points in a 20-3 win and keeping MSU quarterback Andrew Maxwell under constant pressure. Maxwell, however, is more of a traditional pocket quarterback than Robinson, who excels when he's on the move or out in space. He'll present a different type of challenge for the Notre Dame defense.

Michigan beat Notre Dame 35-31 last year. Notre Dame controlled the game until the fourth quarter, when Michigan outscored the Irish 28-7.
