No. 3 Georgia holds off No. 7 Notre Dame 23-17

  No. 3 Georgia holds off No. 7 Notre Dame 23-17 No. 3 Georgia holds off No. 7 Notre Dame 23-17The Bulldogs (4-0) trailed 10-7 at halftime but turned the momentum when redshirt freshman Divaad Wilson intercepted a pass by Ian Book deep in Notre Dame territory. The Fromm-to-Cager combination helped push Georgia to a 23-10 lead, but the Fighting Irish (2-1) had a chance at the end.

Virginia 's linebackers are an active bunch: 6-foot 7, 235-pounder Charles Snowden had 15 tackles and two sacks last week while Zane Zandler returned Maybe the most emotional of Notre Dame 's seven captains, safety Jalen Elliott is one of three players who played their high school football in Virginia .

There is no margin for error now for No . 10 Notre Dame . The Cavaliers' 3-4 defense is the national co-leader with Florida with 20 quarterback sacks and ranked No. 14 with 263. 8 yards allowed, including just 75 yards on the ground, certainly no relief for a Notre Dame team that had only 46 rushing yards

The halftime strategy session inside Notre Dame’s defensive locker room had to be pretty simple: stop Bryce Perkins. Virginia’s quarterback carried the visitors to a 17-14 halftime lead, completing 18-of-22 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns while the Cavaliers mustered all of minus-2 yards on the ground.

The message sunk in. No. 10 Notre Dame’s defense harassed Perkins to the tune of five second-half sacks, two interceptions and two fumbles, turning a 3-point deficit into a 35-20 win over No. 18 Virginia.

The first of those three second-half turnovers came at the 9:50 mark of the third quarter, when Jamir Jones sacked Perkins and Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa (Tua’s cousin) raced the ball 48 yards to the Virginia 7-yard line, setting up Tony Jones, Jr.’s 2-yard go-ahead touchdown, his second of the day.

  SMU ranked in top 25 for first time since Death Penalty, Alabama new No. 1 over Clemson in all major polls The Mustangs are 5-0 after beating USF while Clemson's close call with UNC was punished nearly universally.There was a new program atop the Week 6 edition of the poll but it was old familiar Alabama, who has now pipped previous No. 1 Clemson in all three of the major polls released on Sunday. The Tigers narrowly avoided losing to North Carolina on Saturday and voters have appropriately punished Dabo Swinney’s team by dropping them across the board. Georgia remained No. 3 while Ohio State moved into the top four after flipping spots with No. 5 LSU. The top 14 was otherwise unchanged aside from No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 10 Florida changing places.

Then, with 1:41 left in the third quarter, Julian Okwara sacked and stripped Perkins, which Adetokunbo Ogundeji scooped and scored from 23 yards out, giving the Irish a commanding 28-17 lead.

Finally, Alohi Gilman intercepted Perkins at Notre Dame’s 29 with 12:32 left in the third quarter, setting up Notre Dame’s offense to put the game away for good with a 5-play, 71-yard touchdown drive, punctuated by a 30-yard Jones rush. Jones finished the game with 131 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries.

Perkins opened the game by orchestrating a 7-play, 69-yard touchdown drive that scored on a 6-yard toss to Joe Reed on third-and-goal. Notre Dame (3-1) then surged ahead 14-7 with touchdown drives on its first two opportunities, scoring on runs by Jones and C’Bo Flemister.

Bowl Projections: Clemson Must Be Careful in a Down ACC

  Bowl Projections: Clemson Must Be Careful in a Down ACC Where does your team stand in our lastest projection of all 40 bowl matchups, including the College Football Playoff?We’ll keep the Tigers in our College Football Playoff for now, but the quandary illustrates the state of college football in 2019. A one-loss conference champ is no guarantee for the Playoff, and Clemson’s tightrope remains as thin as ever. There are no shortage of teams to take the Tigers’ place if an ACC team can pull off the upset.

(AP) — There is no margin for error now for No . 10 Notre Dame . Virginia quarterback Bryce Perkins (3) runs the ball past Florida State linebacker Emmett Rice (56) during the first half of an NCAA college football game in Charlottesville, Va ., Saturday, Sept.

There is no margin for error now for No . 10 Notre Dame . Virginia 's linebackers are an active bunch: 6-foot 7, 235-pounder Charles Snowden had 15 tackles and two sacks last week while Zane Zandler returned an interception for a touchdown and Matt Gahm and Jordan Mack added another 19 tackles.

Virginia (4-1) then scored 10 straight, taking the lead on a 16-yard Perkins toss to Hasise Dubois with 43 seconds left in the first half. Bronco Mendenhall then capitalized on his team’s momentum by opening the second half with an onside kick, which the Wahoos recovered. That possession ended in a punt from Notre Dame’s 40, and another possession, which began after Notre Dame fumbled a punt return at its own 41 and the Cavs trailing 21-17, ended in a turnover on downs.

With Virginia trailing 35-20 with just under four minutes to play, Perkins erased any hopes of a comeback when he fired his second interception of the day to Notre Dame’s Kyle Hamilton. Perkins finished the game 30-of-43 for 334 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and three fumbles while being sacked eight times.
