    The 2011 BCS National Championship Game

    Notre Dame 34 Ohio State 31

    This game will go down as an instant classic; it was one of the best championship games of all time.

    Right from the start Terrelle Pryor marched his team down the field and hooked up with TE Jake Stoneburner for this 54 yd TD pass:

    The teams would exchange FGs to push the score to 10-3 Buckeyes after 1 quarter.

    Early in the 2nd the story of the game would unfold; namely, Notre Dame's ability to force Pryor to throw interceptions. Here Irish LB Brad Smith picked off Pryor, one of 4 INTs on the day for the senior.

    The interception would set up this 12 yard Michael Floyd TD rec:

    After another Pryor INT, Cierre Wood would punch it in from 5 yards out to quiet the Buckeye faithful.

    Notre Dame would open the half with the ball and a FG drive to extend the lead to 20-10, but Ohio State would mount a furious comeback as Pryor would find Stoneburner on another long TD pass (20-17 Irish):

    Notre Dame was driving the field before...

    Cierre Wood's fumble cost the Irish the momentum

    OSU would capitalize on this "Boom" Herron 1 yard run.

    But HERE COME THE IRISH, who made big plays in the 4th quarter. First Dayne Crist (who had the best game of this life) audibled Deion Walker into a fly route for this 36 yard TD pass, arguably the play of the game.

    After a key stop on 4th and 2 at midfield, Notre Dame goes up 10 on this Cierre Wood toss left:

    But Ohio State was like the Hydra, Notre Dame would have to cut off the head, for they were not going to surrender the National Title without a fight. Pryor hit Jaamal Berry on a nice swing pass to close the game to 3!

    After a key stop, Notre Dame had to punt the ball and all the momentum. But on Ohio State's 2nd play of the drive, Irish redshirt freshman Gamara Nelson picks off Pryor to seal the victory and the National Championship.
