Michigan Fans Prank Notre Dame

Michigan Banner at Notre Dame Stadium

Michigan and Notre Dame meet for the 40th time in their Football rivalry this weekend, but it appears Michigan fans didn’t want to wait until Saturday to start the trash talk. According to an email sent to The Michigan Daily (the University of Michigan student paper) a group of Michigan fans drove to South Bend and in the early hours of the morning decorated Notre Dame’s stadium with a Michigan banner reading “Beat The Irish.”

The game Saturday night was already expected to be heated, with both teams coming in ranked in the Top 25 and BCS hopes on the line. This little bit of harmless vandalism should crank the rivalry among fans up another notch. We look forward to seeing how the Notre Dame faithful retaliate.
