For the last 3 season this rivalry has been a bit lackluster in terms of the national rankings of the teams, but when it comes to excitement it has been #1. So far in three season Michigan has found a way to win the game with less than 30 seconds on the clock. However none of even those close nail biters compared to this years game under the lights for the first time in school history at the BIG HOUSE.
Notre Dame dominated the first half of football, including having a 14-0 lead and a halftime lead of 17-7, which became a 24-7 lead on the opening drive of the 3rd quarter. With less than 3 min. in the 3rd quarter Denard Robinson started to mount the most unlikely of comebacks. Out scoring ND 28-7 in the final quarter of the game. To try and put it into words would be a waste, just watch the highlights below.

– TD celebration
One last reflection after seeing these crowd videos. If you are a fan, a player, or a coach of another team in the BIG TEN you should start praying now that Michigan doesn’t schedule your game as a night game. It is listed as the toughest place to play yet but after seeing that video I doubt anyone in the country wants to come play football at night at the BIG HOUSE.
