Notre Dame to Add Western Michigan to 2020 Schedule

Well this should be fun

The Western Michigan Broncos will travel less than 100 miles to one of the Meccas of college football, South Bend, Indiana. They will, of course, take on the once proud Notre Dame Fighting Irish for a cool 1.175 million dollar payday, at least according to this tweet from Brandon Folsom.

The Fighting Irish are 3-0 vs. the Broncos, with their latest win coming in 2010 by a margin of 44-20. The other two wins happened back in the era where the Wolverines claim most of their titles.

While the game is far enough away that most predictions will be useless, I will go ahead and throw one out there. If former CMU and now current ND head coach Brian Kelly wants to attend this game, he’ll have to buy a ticket like the rest of us. 4000 of those will be given to WMU as part of the deal.
