Notre Dame Football is 27-1-2 Against Non-Big 10 Michigan Teams
Notre Dame's Football rivalries against the University of Michigan and Michigan State are the stuff of college football lore and legend. Much less known is the walloping the boys from South Bend have historically put on non-Big 10 Michigan schools.
Looking back through the annals of Irish football history, we found that Michigan schools not from Ann Arbor or East Lansing have a combined 27-1-2 record against Notre Dame.
Here's the breakdown by the 8 Michigan schools that have played Notre Dame:
- Adrian 1-0
- Albion 3-1-1
- Alma 4-0
- Detroit-Mercy 2-0
- Hillsdale 4-0-1
- Kalamazoo College 7-0
- Olivet 3-0
- Western Michigan 3-0
So congratulations to Albion College, the Brits own the only victory of the bunch over Notre Dame, a 19-12 win on November 29, 1894.
Western Michigan University gets another crack at ND when the Broncos make the short drive to South Bend in 2020.
