  No. 10 Notre Dame forces five turnovers, eight sacks to push past No. 18 Virginia Tony Jones complimented a great effort by Notre Dame's defense by rushing for 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.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.

Alabama' s onside kick changed the national title game . But look closely, and you'd notice kicker Adam Griffith' s run-up is a tad slower than normal. And instead of planting his left foot with the last step and letting out a huge boot, he swivels his body and pops the ball into those 20 unguarded yards.

Brian Kelly has lost games like that at Notre Dame . He lost at Florida State in 2014 because an He had purged reps to Zaire during the lead up to the season, and never got fully in sync with his There was no question who Notre Dame ’ s quarterback was going to be, but there were questions at wide

A Notre Dame-USC game that got testy at halftime ended in controversy on Saturday, as officials somehow failed to notice a wildly gesturing, presumably screaming man that was jumping up and down on the field during a game-deciding onside kick attempt for the Trojans.

The man in question: Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly.

The onside-kick attempt came after a Markese Stepp touchdown that cut Notre Dame’s lead to three points at 30-27. With Kelly on the field, USC attempted to get the ball back with a minute left in the game, but were unable to recover the ball.

  Book throws 5 TDs as No. 9 Notre Dame routs Bowling Green No. 9 Notre Dame rolled over Bowling Green 52-0 on Saturday. The Fighting Irish (4-1) had their way with the Falcons, a first-time opponent from the Mid-American Conference whose campus is just 164 miles away.

On Sunday, during the first wave of games , we saw two different teams begin with an onside kick , almost at the same exact time. This begs the question: When is the right time to use the onside kick ? For obvious reasons, the best time is when the front line of the opponent takes off too early, and

Unlike the officials, USC head coach Clay Helton did notice Kelly on the field and asked if the play was reviewable after it didn’t go his team’s way.

Had an official noticed Kelly, USC likely would have gotten another attempt at kicking the ball, but alas. Such is life with a Pac-12 officiating crew.

Thanks to a massive day on the ground from running back Tony Jones Jr. and company (308 rushing yards), No. 9 Notre Dame survived the comeback scare from USC. The Irish will now head into a bye week with another rivalry game at Michigan on tap for Oct. 26.

No. 19 Michigan routs No. 8 Notre Dame 45-14 in rain .
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jim Harbaugh desperately needed a significant victory to change the conversation, at least temporarily, about the job he's doing at Michigan. The Wolverines delivered. Zach Charbonnet ran for two touchdowns in the first half and Shea Patterson threw for two scores in the second half, helping No. 19 Michigan rout No. 8 Notre Dame 45-14 in driving rain Saturday night. The Wolverines (6-2) ended an eight-game losing streak against top-10 teams under Harbaugh, who needed a signature win in his fifth season that likely won't end with the Big Ten title he and college football's winningest program desperately covet.
