Saturday Tradition News: Kirk Herbstreit picks Michigan to beat Notre Dame

One “College GameDay” analyst wasn’t shy about sharing his pick ahead of the game. Kirk Herbstreit told reporters on a conference call that he sees the Wolverines starting the season with a win.

“Between us,” said Herbstreit, “I think they’re going to go to South Bend and win, and I think they’re going to get on a roll. I think they’re going to be able to create an identity. I think people that are down on Jim Harbaugh. By Week 3, they’re going to go back to saying how he’s the greatest coach in the country, and I think the momentum is going to be created there.”
