Explaining Michigan's chicken-themed win over Notre Dame
Michigan knocked off Notre Dame 41-30 on Saturday, and what song did the Wolverines' PA play following their fight song? Well, the chicken dance song, of course.
Chickens have been a theme of the Michigan-Notre Dame series dating back to the summer. With Notre Dame becoming a partial member of the ACC, the Fighting Irish announced their series with the Wolverines would end following the 2014 season. Michigan head coach Brady Hoke said Notre Dame was "chickening out", and thus a theme was born.
If this was the last time Notre Dame will visit The Big House, at least the game didn't disappoint. And for the record, the Wolverines aren't buying the series isn't a rivalry. No matter what Brian Kelly says.
