Jeff Jackson's #6 ranked Fighting Irish beat the #10 Michigan Wolverines 3 -1 tonight in front of a sold-out crowd at the Compton Family Ice Arena. The win moves the Irish into a tie with Michigan for 3rd or 4th place in the CCHA, depending on how Lake Superior fared this evening. It was also the first loss for Michigan in their last nine games. Congratulations Irish!

Syracuse University's #1 ranked basketball team comes into Notre Dame's Purcell Pavillion tomorrow night -- marking the first time in 24 years that a #1 ranked team has come into town to play the Irish basketball team.
Now, believe it or not -- the ODDS are in Notre Dame's favor that we'll UPSET #1 in our building.
Over the years, EIGHT teams have come into South Bend ranked #1 -- and on SIX occasions -- the IRISH were VICTORIOUS! So, lookout Syracuse!
Here's a link to a look-back at #1's coming into Purcell Pavillion:
