Irish fans predict a win in Saturday's Michigan game

Posted:

Notre Dame and Michigan has always been one of Michiana's favorite football rivalries. Once a year neighbors turn the cold shoulder on each other for a day to support either the kelly green and old gold or the maize and blue.

This year's rivalry game is especially important to fans of both teams because it will be the last one for awhile. FOX28 Morning Show reporter Amir Abbas hit up Nick's Patio in South Bend to talk with fans who are ready for the game. Amir ran into many fans, but two Notre Dame fans who spoke with us on camera predicted an Irish win.

"They're going to win from my point of view," said Adrian Mainer. "They try hard and they don't give up, like their sign says, 'Play Like A Champion.'"

Adrian guesses that Notre Dame will win by 10 points. But fellow diner and Irish fan Kelly Brown had an even bolder prediction.

"I think we're really going to do well. I'm going out on a limb and saying 20 points," she said. "It's the Big House, but I think we're going into our own and I think Tommy [Rees] is going to do great."

Kelly went on to say that Rees is one of the most consistent players Notre Dame has had this year and that she has all the faith in the world in him.

"I think with all the controversy and all the ins and outs he's stayed steady, and he's stayed mature and he's there and I think this is going to be his year," she said.

Amir did not run into any Michigan fans at Nick's Patio. But if social media is any indication, they're just as happy that game day is almost here and just as confident in the Wolverine as Irish fans are in Notre Dame.

Saturday night's game kicks off at 8 p.m. in Ann Arbor. We'll have all the coverage you need on air with FOX28 News at 10 and online, right here at FOX28.com.
