Michigan Vs. Notre Dame: Irish Defense Continues To Create Turnovers, Leads 10-0 After Third Quarter

The Michigan Wolverines had their best scoring opportunity of the game in the third quarter, but the Notre Dame Fighting Irish defense created another turnover and leads Michigan 10-0 after three quarters.

Michigan drove to the Notre Dame 16 with 8:55 remaining in the quarter. On a third and three, Denard Robinson scrambled for enough yardage for a first down, but fumbled on the play and Notre Dame recovered. It was Robinson's fifth turnover of the game and the sixth of the game for Michigan. Robinson threw four interceptions in the first half.

Notre Dame's offense stalled in the quarter, however. Tommy Rees replaced Everett Golson at quarterback late in the first half and led the Irish to the game's only touchdown, but he completed just one pass in the third quarter and the Notre Dame offense only ran nine plays on two possessions.
