Its dramatic rally - make that two rallies - in the final 75 seconds to win earned the Michigan Wolverines (2-0) the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week for games of the weekend of Sept. 10. Quarterback Denard Robinson threw a 16-yard pass to Roy Roundtree with two seconds left, lifting the Wolverines to a 35-31 win over Notre Dame in front of 104,814 fans in the first night game ever played at Michigan Stadium. Robinson also threw a 21-yard touchdown to Vincent Smith with 1:12 left, giving Michigan its first lead. But Notre Dame rallied to retake the lead with a touchdown pass with 30 seconds left. Robinson's 64-yard completion on the final drive put Michigan in position for the winning play.
"I really didn't do anything. I can tell you our kids fought together, they stayed together and they played 60 minutes of football," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said after the game. "It's great to win. It's great to win this rivalry game."
