Notre Dame vs. Stanford score: Fighting Irish trail 10-3 at halftime

Notre Dame and Stanford both struggled offensively in the first half, but turnovers by Notre Dame helped Stanford go into the half with a 10-3 lead Saturday.

Notre Dame led 3-0 after a Kyle Brindza field goal late in the first quarter. Stanford got on the board in the second quarter with 6:35 remaining when Chase Thomas recovered a fumble by Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson in the end zone for a touchdown.

Golson is 6-for-16 for 59 yards. He has also lost two fumbles. Theo Riddick has six carries for 26 yards. Stepfan Taylor has 12 carries for 49 yards to lead Stanford. Stanford has also turned it over twice.
