Michigan's woes are over—for the time being. For Notre Dame, troubles have only increased after a humiliating 38-0 defeat yesterday in Ann Arbor. For both teams, yesterday's game was an opportunity to dispel qualms stemming from dismal 0-2 starts. The Wolverine's Mike Hart was dominant, rushing for 187 yards and scoring twice.
After last week's second-straight loss, Hart had personally guaranteed a victory over the Fighting Irish. "I knew I was going to perform because you can't say something like that and not perform," he said. This marks the worst beating the Irish have suffered since Michigan routed them by the same tally four years ago.
