A house divided: Low's look for bragging rights Saturday night

NILES, Mich. -

On this summer night, love is not in the air.

Andy and Bailey Low have known each other for over a decade and are happily married.

There is one thing, however, that they don’t agree on.

“We do our fair share of going back and forth,” said Andy.

For this married couple, it’s not the finances, or the kids.

“Maybe that’s because he’s a Notre Dame fan,” said Bailey.

The only argument in this household is the team they will root for on Saturday night.

 “I can’t help it, I grew up that way”

Andy is from Michigan and bleeds blue and gold.

“I grew up in Niles and followed them my entire life,” said Andy.

Bailey is from Indiana.

“My dad, my grandpa, my mom are all Michigan State grads,” said Bailey.

A Saturday night win means bragging rights until the two teams meet on the field again.

Andy isn’t getting a lot of help from family either, often outnumbered during tailgates and viewing parties.

And don’t count on sympathy from the better half.

“Well since we decide that is never going to happen, we’re focusing on the kids now,” said Andy.

Andy and Bailey will be attending a friend’s wedding in Kalamazoo forcing them to miss the game.

But if you think love will be in the air between these two high school sweethearts?

Think again.

“When it comes to Notre Dame and Michigan State, it’s not even close,” said Andy.

Come Sunday morning, for this husband and wife, some vows may have to be re-written as things will get worse before they get better.

“We support each other when we are not playing each other,” said Bailey.
