Miami vs. Notre Dame score update: Hurricanes trail, 13-3, after one half in Chicago

The Miami Hurricanes trail the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 13-3, after one half at Chicago's Soldier Field. The Miami offense has been successfully bottled up by the Irish, with the Canes converting only six first downs in the first 30 minutes. A Jake Wieclaw 28-yard field goal provided the only points for Al Golden's squad.

But the Miami defense has also kept Notre Dame relatively in check. The Irish added two field goals in the second quarter to push their lead to 10, but Theo Riddick's 1-yard run on their opening drive remains the game's only touchdown.

Quarterback Stephen Morris finished the half 9-of-19 for 125 yards, but the Canes simply could not get the big play when they needed it. Miami controlled the field position battle in the second quarter, and it looked like the Hurricanes might add a field goal in the final minute, but Wieclaw's attempt was well left. Dynamic freshman Duke Johnson rushed the ball just four times for 18 yards, while Mike James has five carries for 28 yards.

The Irish will receive the kick to start the second half.
