Michigan Wolverines Half Way Done For An Upset Of Notre Dame


The Michigan Wolverines have 27 points at halftime and that is more than Notre Dame allowed in any regular season game all of last year. The Wolverines started their scoring with a big play when Devin Gardner threw a  61-yd TD Pass To Jeremy Gallon, that put them up to stay so far in this game.

The Fighting Irish are having problems making routine tackles, tackles missed that cause them touchdowns in the first half.

Wolverines are leading in all of the categories on the field with time of possession at 17:02 to 12:58 and 13 first downs to 9 for the Irish.

Quarterback Derick Gardner thus far is 13 out of 20 for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns out doing his opponent Tommy Rees who was 11 of 23 for 146 yards and 1 touchdown.

I look for the Wolverines to continue to dominate on offense as the defense has done a good job in holding the Irish from scoring. The game only has one turnover by Notre Dame so far as the games only turnover so far, but there is much football to be played.

Notre Dame comes into the game ranked number 14 in the polls and should they fall to the 17th ranked Wolverines it will be another big change in the rankings as there has been a number of upsets so far this college season.  So far the Wolverines lead the Irish 27 to 13 at the half, should be a good finish.
