Last weekend the Michigan Wolverines dropped their second game of the season, this time at the hands of the Penn State Nittany Lions.

After heading into Happy Valley for a Whiteout Game and losing by a final score of 28-21, rumors of head coach Jim Harbaugh leaving the program grew louder. Harbaugh made sure to quiet those rumors with a letter to recruits, but the Michigan football program is on shaky ground regardless.

This weekend, the Wolverines face off against yet another ranked opponent.

Notre Dame comes to Ann Arbor for a huge game that could determine the future success of Harbaugh and the Wolverines. A loss means Michigan likely finishes the season with an 8-4 record - a disastrous season at best for Michigan.

Fans attending Saturday's game will want to bring a rain jacket and perhaps an umbrella. Rain and wind are expected to have an impact on the game.

The weather could favor Michigan, who likes to pound the rock and bully the opponent. Fighting Irish quarterback Ian Book and Wolverines quarterback Shea Patterson could be in for a long day.

Michigan enters the game as a one-point underdog, despite playing in the Big House.

The Wolverines and Fighting Irish kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
