ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Two games into the Brady Hoke era, the new Michigan coach has victory that will go down as one of the greatest in the school’s storied history.
Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes in the last 1:12, including the game-winner against Notre Dame with 2 seconds left, in a game tough to top for entertainment.
The Wolverines’ 35-31 win over the Fighting Irish was filled with a slew of miscues in front of an NCAA-record crowd of 114,804 and a national TV audience. But the first prime-time game at the Big House that generated a lot of hype didn’t disappoint anyone not rooting for Notre Dame.
Hoke is off to a 2-0 start in charge of college football’s winningest team.
Brian Kelly is 0-2 in his second year with a program that ranks No. 2 in winning percentage.
