Michigan Beats Notre Dame on Late TD
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Denard Robinson threw a 16-yard pass to Roy Roundtree with 2 seconds left, lifting Michigan to a 35-31 heart-pounding win over Notre Dame on Saturday night.

The Wolverines took their first lead on Robinson's 21-yard pass to Vincent Smith with 1:12 left, then lost it.

Briefly.

Tommy Rees threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick with 30 seconds left, but the Fighting Irish left Jeremy Gallon wide open on a pass that let Michigan go from its 20 to the Notre Dame 16.

The Wolverines (2-0) have won three straight against the rival Irish (0-2) on late-game plays by quarterbacks. Last year, it was Robinson and Tate Forcier in 2009.

It was the first night game at Michigan Stadium -- and it lived up to the hype.
