Last night, the Michigan Wolverines dismantled the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in one of the most surprising results from this weekend. The blowout win from Jim Harbaugh's crew caught the attention of Kirk Herbstreit, who called the game.

Michigan had a 5-2 record heading into this Saturday, but the team was clearly motivated to bounce back from its loss to Penn State.

On the other hand, Notre Dame had over a week to prepare for this showdown. And yet, Brian Kelly's squad didn't look ready at all for the challenge.

Herbstreit went on social media to give his thoughts about last night's game. He couldn't decide if he was more impressed by the Wolverines or disappointed by the Fighting Irish.

After all, Notre Dame looked uninspired yesterday despite playing a major rival.

It seems like Herbstreit is truly baffled at how poorly the Fighting Irish performed on Saturday.

Check it out:

Although the Wolverines didn't have an incredible performance in the passing game, the team leaned on its running game and stingy defense.

Don Brown's scheme held Ian Book to just 73 passing yards and one touchdown. It was quite the coaching performance from the 64-year-old defensive coordinator.

Maybe this win helps Michigan go on a run to end this season.
