ANN ARBOR (AP). — Devin Gardner threw four touchdown passes, including a victory-sealing connection to Drew Dileo with 4:18 left, and the dual-threat quarterback wearing No. 98 to honor Tom Harmon ran for a score to lead No. 17 Michigan to a 41-30 win over No. 14 Notre Dame on Saturday night in front of an NCAA-record crowd of 115,109.

The Wolverines (2-0) had a pair of 14-point leads, but the Fighting Irish (1-1) refused to get routed.

Notre Dame pulled within a TD early in the fourth quarter when defensive end Stephon Tuitt made a diving interception in the end zone.

Kyle Brindza made a 40-yard field goal with 9:15 left to pull Notre Dame within four points.

The Irish were called for pass interference twice on the ensuing drive and Gardner later took advantage with a 4-yard TD to Dileo.

Tommy Rees threw a second interception with 1:29 left.
