    Bowlin' for Roses features it's first Game of the Week, Week 4 of Season 4. After stunning the College Football nation last year, Notre Dame began where it left off, at the top of the food chain. Led by their receiving core, Deion Walker(25-333 2TD), Shaquelle Evans(13-223 1TD), and Sean Moss(11-205 2TD). ND features the #2 passing offense so far with 1,027 yards. Quickly passing Penn State early on, they have their 2nd user game of the year in the Michigan Wolverines. Not much is known about T2's Wolverines this year and in BfR as they have been controlled by former TF members and the dreaded CPU. One thing we do know, T2 knows how to run and win. Sparking the run game has been the two-headed monster in Vincent Smith & Teric Jones. The 2 have combined for 325 yards on the ground with 5 touchdowns. However, drilling two non-BCS teams this year doesn't equate to being able to match-up or play with the #1 ranked team in the land. The Fighting Irish come into this game looking to preserved its dominance among BfR users. Michigan wants to create controversy in the Big Ten and upset the best team in the nation. Can they do it? You be the judge and cast your vote.

    I voted for Michigan. I think Bits has too much pressure on having to repeat. T2 is in his first year as HC of Michigan and shouldn't have extreme expectations. I think that T2 will be able to control the clock big time with his commanding run game. ND forces too many big plays which results in scores for Michigan. 28-24 Michigan

    I'm going with N.D. I feel like they are poised and ready to make a run at it one more time, plus I want them to overlook the Trojans due to their success.

    I voted Michigan. Should be a close one. I just think Michigan has more balance on offense and they are playing very good Defense.

    Mich : 42
    ND : 38

    When it comes down to it, Michigan. I feel that they are a little better on defense, but they need to find some magic on the offensive side of the ball. Forcier/Roundtree have been big play, but the bread and butter seems to be the ground game. ND has a great receiving corp, but I believe the Wolverine secondary will negate that.
