Michigan Stuns Notre Dame, 35-31

(AP) Denard Robinson threw a 16-yard pass to Roy Roundtree with 2 seconds left, lifting Michigan to a 35-31 heart-pounding win over Notre Dame on Saturday night. The Wolverines took their first lead on Robinson’s 21-yard pass to Vincent Smith with 1:12 left, then lost it. Briefly. Tommy Rees threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick with 30 seconds left, but the Fighting Irish left Jeremy Gallon wide open on a pass that let Michigan go from its 20 to the Notre Dame 16. The Wolverines (2-0) have won three straight against the rival Irish (0-2) on late-game plays by quarterbacks. Last year, it was Robinson and Tate Forcier in 2009. It was the first night game at Michigan Stadium – and it lived up to the hype. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.

Virginia Rallies Past Indiana, 34-31

(AP) Virginia scored 11 points in the final 96 seconds Saturday night, getting a 23-yard field goal from Robert Randolph as time expired to beat Indiana 34-31. It was Mike London’s first road win in two seasons as coach of the Cavaliers (2-0). Indiana (0-2) rallied from a 20-point second-half deficit, only to give away an 8-point lead in the final two minutes. Perry Jones had 3-yard TD run for Virginia with 1:36 remaining, and Michael Rocco threw to Paul Freedman for the 2-point conversion to tie the score at 31. Indiana got the ball back, but on third-and-3 from its own 23, Cam Johnson stole the ball out of quarterback Edward Wright-Baker‘s hands. That gave Virginia the ball at the Hoosiers’ 14, setting up Randolph’s winning field goal. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.

New Mexico State Upsets Minnesota

(AP) New Mexico State’s 28-21 victory at Minnesota on Saturday afternoon was overshadowed by a health scare for Gophers head coach Jerry Kill, who had an apparent seizure on the sideline and was taken from the stadium by ambulance with 20 seconds left in the game. Andrew Manley passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns for the Aggies (1-1), who beat a Big Ten team for the first time in program history. The Gophers (0-2) had the ball at the New Mexico State 25-yard line and were trying for the tying touchdown when medical personnel suddenly surrounded Kill. He was on his back, and at times his arms and legs were flapping back and forth. After about 15 minutes, Kill was hoisted on a stretcher and rolled off the field as the crowd clapped and chanted his first name.
