Notes to know

■ Notre Dame and Michigan resume their rivalry after a three-season hiatus. In the previous meeting in 2014, the Fighting Irish hammered the Wolverines 31-0.

■ The Notre Dame-Michigan meeting is the game of the day, at least if you’re a defensive aficionado. Oddsmakers set the over/under total lower than every game Saturday except one. For the Irish, 30 is the magic number — they’re 53-1 in season openers when they score 30 or more points.

■ Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson, a transfer from Mississippi, completed 63.8 percent of his passes with the Rebels last season. Only one Michigan starting quarterback (Jake Rudock in 2015) in the past 20 years eclipsed that mark.
