Notre Dame Shuts Down Michigan

September 22, 2012 Updated Sep 22, 2012 at 11:20 PM EDT

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Manti Te'o had two interceptions as 11 th - ranked Notre Dame picked off five Michigan passes and backup quarterback Tommy Rees sparked the Fighting Irish offense in a 13 - 6 win over the 18 th - ranked Wolverines Saturday night.

Denard Robinson, who amassed 948 yards of total offense in victories over the Irish past two years, wasn't as effective this time as the Irish repeatedly forced him into mistakes. He threw four interceptions in the first half, then lost a fumble at the Notre Dame 8 - yard line on the first drive of the second half.

The victory by Notre Dame, 4 - 0, ended a streak of three straight games in which Michigan, 2 - 2, beat the Irish in the final 27 seconds.
