THE Ohio State University Summaries Well regardless of what has happened to this point in the season the new coaching staff has the Buckeyes back on track. This week they faced a grueling game against a seemingly invincible Notre Dame team and their freak of a running back. With great defensive pressure preventing even the slightest crack for Allen to slip through The Buckeyes got Notre Dame a little out of their comfort zone. But when Dayne Crist dropped back to pass the pressure only got worse. He was barely able to set his feet most of the game in the face of a relentless OSU pass rush. When Crist went out of the game with an injury it definitely didn't help the situation. Notre Dame did get a chance at one last drive with about 90 seconds left but a timely INT by the Buckeye D sealed the game as Pryor and company ran out the clock. The final score OSU 31 ND 24 as The Buckeyes improve to 7-3.
