Irish catch break, trail Michigan by 3

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Notre Dame caught a break in the red zone as the No. 14 Irish trail No. 17 Michigan 10-7 after one quarter.

Notre Dame cut its deficit to three with 2:01 to play in the first thanks to a fortunate bounce.

On third-and-goal from Michigan's 4, Rees' pass went off George Atkinson III's hands and into the arms of TJ Jones in the back of the end zone. That capped the Irish's first series in which it gained a first down as they went 75 yards on nine plays.

Michigan scored on its first two possessions with Brendan Gibbons connecting on a 44-yard field goal with 9 minutes to play in the first, and Jeremy Gallon scoring on a 61-yard reception with 5:35 left in the quarter.

Gallon's reception was the first big mistake by the Irish's defense. The senior was left wide open in the middle of the field for a big gain on the catch and then the defense failed to bring him down to allow the score.

Tommy Rees is 6 for 9 for 75 yards and a TD after going 1 for 2 for 3 yards on the Irish's first two possessions.
