Notre Dame 35 Michigan 17
In front of a crowd of 80,795 in South Bend, IN, the Wolverines fell behind early and could never catch the Fighting Irish as Michigan fell to Notre Dame 35-17. Michigan was doomed by six (6) turnovers and poor execution. Michigan has two weeks to correct the situation as the Wolverines have a bye week next week before kicking off the Big 10 season the following week versus Wisconsin. Following is the game summary, boxscore, play-by-play chart, postgame notes, player participation chart, photos (MGoBlue;Detroit News;AP), and video (NBC Sports). Much analysis to follow once I'm done wringing out my clothes (from the rain and my tears). Go Blue!
