SEC Fans Notre Dame vs Michigan 2018 Preview and Predictions

While I might not agree with all their points does a great job previewing this week's Notre Dame vs Michigan game.  It's gonna be a defensive battle.  No question.  And with two really good defenses going at it I expect a low scoring game with the winner scoring somewhere in the mid 20's.  The over/under is currently at 48 and I would put good money on the under.  Michigan's offense is terrible and with leading WR Tarik Black out with a foot injury I don't expect them to put much points on the board against a veteran Notre Dame defense.  While I don't think Michigan will get shutout like last time I'd be surprised if new QB transfer Shea Patterson can be effective in a hostile environment vs a blitzing defense that is going to punish him.  For some bizarre reason this game is a pick em despite Notre Dame returning a senior QB in Brandon Wimbush and playing at home.  College GameDay will be there.  I gotta go ND here.
