Notre Dame running game stuffed

Michigan came into the Notre Dame game with the #4 ranked run defense in the nation (see post of 9/15/06) and the Wolverines were focused on stopping RB Darius Walker who had gained over 100 yards in each of the last two meetings between the teams. The defense came up big as they held Walker to 25 yards on 10 carries. As a team, Notre Dame was limited to four (4) yards rushing on 17 carries (0.2 avg) for the game. By taking an early lead and stuffing the Notre Dame running game, Michigan forced Notre Dame into a one-dimensional offense where the Irish threw the ball 49 times and were intercepted 3 times. Go Blue!
