WMU Football Announces 2020 Game at Notre Dame

Notre Dame also brings dual threat quarterback Brandon Wimbush, who is the team's second leading rusher.

The contract stipulates WMU could receive $500,000 if Notre Dame cancels the game at least one year in advance and $1.1 million if it cancels within a year of the game.

The ability to watch an National Basketball Association game in VR with friends who aren't in the same room like the one provided by FOX Sports would be coming "soon", he said, because Next VR was receiving feedback from users demanding to watch sports in a more social and in a less isolating environment. Saturday's game will take place from Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan and air live on FOX. And last week against Boston College, Wimbush had himself a monster of a game, rushing for over 200 yards and four touchdowns. As a freshman last year, he collected a sack in the win over the Irish and with an additional year of experience, his presence could be even more problematic unless Mustipher can keep him in control. The Irish have hit the over in both wins and the under in the loss.

Adams has been the cornerstone of the rejuvenated Irish running game in the team's three games this season, with his 443 yards having been gained in healthy chunks.

Western Michigan was coming off a strong rushing performance the week before against mighty USC and the Spartans locked down LeVante Bellamy, Jarvion Franklin and Jamauri Bogan.

That presents a challenge for MSU's traditionally stingy run defense. MSU is allowing just 12 points and 203.5 yards per game thus far, including only 91.5 rushing yards per game. Lewerke adds another dimension with his mobility, adding 150 yards and two more touchdowns to his totals. Through two games this season, Lewerke has thrown for four touchdowns, along with 411 yards on 54 attempts.

The under has been the trend in this series for good reason.

"It's encouraging that we're playing pretty good right now, but there's a lot of room to be better". ND struggled to move the ball against Georgia and it could have similar struggles in East Lansing.

Michigan State would be the 4th game of the suspension so Stepherson could in theory be back in the mix next week.
