Notre Dame's defense picked 5 consecutive Michigan attempts
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
Notre Dame's 13-6 win over Michigan wasn't an offensive showcase by any stretch, however Notre Dame's defense showed up to play in a big way.
Notre Dame's defense forced 5 turnovers in the first half. That alone is impressive; but dive a little deeper and see what they really did...
With less than 1 minute to play in the first quarter and Michigan driving, Notre Dame's defense went to work. They intercepted a halfback pass to end Michigan's threat. Michigan got the ball four times in the 2nd quarter. Each "drive" ended with a Denard Robinson interception. The craziest part was that the five interceptions came on consecutive pass attempts. Literally, all four Michigan pass attempts in the 2nd quarter were intercepted.
Has this ever happened before? We honestly have no idea and aren't real sure where one would research this.
That doesn't happen without Bob Diaco's defense being very well prepared and executing at a very high level. Good work guys.
