Notre Dame and Michigan square off in the first ever night game at the Big house tomorrow. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit breaks down the game for us talking big expectations.

Biggest concern for Notre Dame?

Notre Dame will most certainly have to be on the look out for Denard Robinson, quarterback of the Wolverines. He threw for over 500 yards last year in South Bend. With a new offensive coordinator and coach for Michigan, the spread offense Richardson successfully played will not be in tact for him. He will have to adjust to the pro-style offense Michigan now plays. Look for Notre Dame to step it up against Denard due to players being more used to Brian Kelly’s defense.

Who will have a big game?

It seems Tommy Rees will be the player to watch this week. His ability and leadership will be tested as they take on Michigan at a stadium that sold 50,000 extra tickets more than they usually sell at their packed stadium.

Tommy has the opportunity to post monster like numbers if he uses wide receiver to the best of his abilities. Floyd can make catches you don’t think are possible so expect a big game for him as well. Both will have to succeed in order for Notre Dame to win.
