Michigan stun the Fighting Irish with Last Gasp TD

This was one of the days most anticipated games and it didn’t disappoint with Michigan grabbing a narrow win with a Touch Down with 2 seconds left on the clock.


Notre Dame looked like they were set to take the game when Theo Riddick scored from Tommy Rees 29 yard pass which game them the lead again following Michigan’s 4th Quarter Fight Back, however there was that final twist in the tail.

In the early stages it looked like Norte Dame were set to bounce back from their disappointing opening game loss to South Florida and they jumped off into a 14 point lead and going into the 3rd Quarter they led 24-7. However The Irish continued to fumble the ball in crucial situations and they were made to pay for their 5 turnovers as the Wolverines staged an amazing 4th Quarter comeback.

Three unanswered Tds in the Fourth gave Michigan the lead going into the final minute, however Notre Dame scored again against a tired Defense and with only 30 second left Michigan had to decide whether to go for a game tying Field Goal or try an win in normal time. They chose the latter and grabbed the winner with 2 seconds left.

An NCAA-record crowd of 114,804 watched this floodlight game and it certainly was one those lucky enough to be there will never forget.

Final Score 35-31.
