Tommy Rees had a productive quarter for Notre Dame. He threw for 45 yards and ran for two yards and one touchdown, and the Fighting Irish now lead 10-0. Notre Dame took the game’s first lead after Kyle Brindza drilled a 33-yard field goal on the last play of a four-play, one-yard drive.
The Fighting Irish started in good field position at the Michigan 17-yard line when Manti Te’o intercepted Denard Robinson’s pass.
Notre Dame added to its advantage when Rees kept it himself for a two-yard touchdown run, the final play on an eight-play, 48-yard drive to give the Fighting Irish the lead, 10-0. An interception by Te’o set Notre Dame up to start the drive.
The Fighting Irish will get the ball to start the second half.
