Michigan's Devin Gardner has been named the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week after guiding the Wolverines to a 41-30 victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in one of the greatest rivalries in college football. In the last Michigan versus Notre Dame match-up at Michigan Stadium for the foreseeable future, the redshirt junior put on the best performance of his career in front of 115,109 spectators -- the largest attendance of any college or NFL game to date. Gardner completed 21 of 30 passes for 294 yards and four touchdowns, and led the team in rushing picking up 82 yards and another score on the ground. Gardner and the 11th-ranked Wolverines will try to move to 3-0 next Saturday, Sept. 14 when they host the Akron Zips. Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was also named honorable mention for the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week honor. During the first nine weeks of the season, a subset of the Davey O'Brien National Selection Committee will name a Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week. All 125 FBS quarterbacks are candidates for the award until semifinalists are announced on Nov. 4. Finalists will be announced Nov. 25 and the 2013 Davey O'Brien Winner will be announced on Dec. 12.
