After leading the Irish to a touchdown on their opening drive, Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist was taken out of the game. Crist scored a 1-yard touchdown on a quarterback sneak, and may have been hurt on the play.
According to NBC’s Alex Flanagan, Crist was having difficulty seeing out of his right eye.
Freshman Tommy Rees came in on the Irish’s second offensive series and threw an interception to Michigan’s Jonas Mouton on his first pass. Rees threw an incompletion in his next series, and was replaced by fellow freshman Nate Montana on Notre Dame’s following possession.
NBC is now reporting that Crist is feeling better and might come back to play in the third quarter.
