TONIGHT AT 8 PM ET
- Sept. 13, 1986 – South Bend, Ind. – #3 Michigan 24, Notre Dame 23
The Michigan defense was on its heels for much of the afternoon as Notre Dame amassed 455 yards of total offense, but forced ND turnovers deep in Wolverine territory. The Fighting Irish failed to convert a golden opportunity with 18 seconds left as John Carney missed a field goal that would have likely won it for Notre Dame.
WEDNESDAY AT 6 PM ET
- Sept. 27, 1997 – Ann Arbor, Mich. – #8 Michigan 21, Notre Dame 14
After a two-year hiatus in this storied rivalry, Michigan coach Lloyd Carr and Notre Dame coach Bob Davie faced each other for the first time. Notre Dame held a 14-7 halftime edge before the Wolverines eventually gained a 21-14 lead. In the fourth quarter, Notre Dame recovered three Michigan fumbles deep in Wolverine territory, but the Michigan defense held the fort all three times and Michigan stayed on track for the 1997 National Championship.
