Robinson, who rushed and passed for 383 yards last week in a win over Connecticut, passed for 244 yards and ran for 258 against the Irish defense.
 
Notre Dame (1-1) lost its starting quarterback, Dayne Crist, for the remainder of the first half after its initial touchdown.

Robinson then raced around right end midway through the second quarter, stunning the home crowd, with an 88-yard scamper for a touchdown.
