Michigan Vs. Notre Dame: Everett Golson Benched, But Notre Dame Leads 10-0 At Halftime

Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson was benched by coach Brian Kelly in the second quarter of Saturday's game after throwing his second interception, and backup Tommy Rees led the Irish to the game's only touchdown, as Notre Dame leads Michigan 10-0 at halftime.

Rees completed 3-for-4 passes for 45 yards and, after a Denard Robinson interception, scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with just 1:27 remaining in the half.

Robinson has thrown four interceptions for Michigan and the Wolverines have five picks overall as running back Vincent Smith was also intercepted. Robinson has passed for 59 yards and run for 55, but two of his turnovers have led directly to Notre Dame scores.

Kyle Brindza kicked a 33-yard field goal early in the second quarter to get the Irish on the board.
