Maize & Blue Revolution Michigan opens up their season with heartbreak in South Bend. Notre Dame edges Michigan 29-26 in a thrilling season opener for both teams. Denard Robinson put the Big 10 on notice that he will be a force to be reckoned with. Robinson completed 21 of his 29 attempts for 287 yards and 3 touchdowns, he also scrambled for an additional 38 yards which will keep opposing defenses on edge. He did however, throw 2 interceptions, including a crucial one inside the Notre Dame 5-yardline with :30 to play. Dane Crist was equally impressive going 18 for 27 for 267 yards and 3 touchdowns also. Both teams saw their starting tailbacks injured for the game, which took away Michigan's confidence in their running game. Tight end J Hayden was Robinson's favorite target on the day making key 3rd down catches and scoring 2 touchdowns. Michigan's defense has some work to do as they couldn't get off the field in the 2nd half and will need to learn how to get some key stops if this team is going to challenge for a Big 10 title. Linebacker B Hawthorne led the Michigan D with 10 tackles and an interception. JT Turner also added 3 tackles and a pick. Michigan has a bye in week 2 and then will host 16th ranked Texas A&M.
