    Notre Dame Brings Home B1G Championship
    Readies for Epic Title Game

    The Notre Dame defense took care of business following a dismal performance against USC the previous week, in which they gave up 45 points and almost let the game slip away. After hearing the taunts from across the country all week, they woke up and shut down the powerful Spartan offense, holding them to just 142 total yards on the day, including -8 rushing yards thanks to 6 sacks from a relentless pass rush. They also forced 4 big turnovers, the last being a fumble recovery for a TD in the 3rd quarter that put the game out of reach.

    It wasn't all gumdrops and blow though, the Irish offense had plenty of problems of its own, with Golson throwing 3 picks and fumbling the ball away once. He also had a few errant passes that could easily have been picked off, so we were pretty lucky the D dropped them. Luckily the miscues didn't cost us, but Golson knows he won't be able to get away with that crap in the title game.

    Taking the load for the offense was Heisman favorite GAIII. We just fed him the ball on a heavy dose of runs and he did the rest, 24 carries for 196 yards and a TD. He was a monster out there and broke the game open with his 83 yard TD to put the team up by 14 in the 1st quarter. It's a shame he was injured a few games, or he could have done some historic things this season.
