Michigan Vs. Notre Dame: Irish Lead 10-0 At Halftime In Turnover-Filled Game

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish took a 10-0 halftime lead over the Michigan Wolverines Saturday, aided by five Michigan interceptions.

Running back Vincent Smith was picked off on a halfback option play in the first quarter and Denard Robinson threw 4 interceptions, two of them by Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. Robinson has completed 5-for-13 passes for 59 yards and ran for 55 yards on 13 carries.

Notre Dame has also thrown 2 interceptions, both by quarterback Everett Golson, who was benched in favor of Tommy Rees in the second quarter. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said at halftime he wasn't sure whether or not he'd go back to Golson. Rees completed 3-for-4 passes for 45 yards and ran for Notre Dame's touchdown after a Robinson interception.

Notre Dame's field goal by Kyle Brindza early in the second quarter was also set up by a Robinson interception.
