Western Michigan will receive a handsome payday when its football team plays Notre Dame in South Bend in 2020.

Michigan State's 36-28 win in South Bend previous year was the only high point to their devastating step-back season. The Spartans have been most deadly during the second and third quarters, having tallied 49 of their 63 points during those periods.

Notre Dame will pay Western Michigan a $1,175,000 guarantee for the contest.

Against Boston College, Brandon Wimbush had arguably his worst game in the air.

At the time, he said the San Antonio Spurs vs. Sacramento Kings game in October 2016 saw fans average seven or eight minutes watching the action through a virtual reality headset, a number that had grown to 45 minutes by the final week of the regular National Basketball Association season.

The 6-foot-4, 236-pound Martini, has been doing it for a long time, too.

Davis' 2016 campaign was plagued by injury, which mirrors Watkins' situation that saw him sit out the entire season.

After all, the Irish only play option-based opponents two or three times per year. He did fall victim against Georgia to two receptions that required an incredible one-handed grab in the end zone and outstanding leaping ability to haul in a clutch pass, flaws that fall into the category of "what can you do?" ND is putting up an average of 39 points and 494.3 yards per game on offense thus far. Should he continue his excellence into Saturday, look for the Spartans to have a real tough time keeping him in check.

The improved Notre Dame defense has seen Morgan be more active when it comes to creating turnovers and keeping most opposing runners in check.

The Spartans host the Irish this Saturday in a huge primetime matchup for the Megaphone Trophy. Michigan State will be prepared for it and quite frankly we do not know what to expect from the offensive line. Joe Bachie, along with the rest of the linebackers, will need to come ready to play if they want to dampen Notre Dame's potent rushing attack. Defensively, the Irish are allowing just 18.7 points and 352 yards per game. He is the tenth 2019 offer the Irish has extended to a player from California. The Irish have hit the over in both wins and the under in the loss.
