Big game with national title implications...good luck fellas
Wow I saw that final score and almost jumped. Sounds like it was a good one.
2pt conversion with under :30 for a tie game...sounds like a great finish
It really was an epic game. Both teams gave every ounce until the last tick. A few big plays were the difference.
It didn't start out great for Notre Dame though. Wisco took the opening kickoff and got a good drive going early mixing run and pass well. ND stood up around midfield and forced a punt. The first play on the ensuing posession? A nice ten yard run with a fumble at the end. Badgers get it back at about the 30. ND defense does what they can and force a field goal. The Irish take their next possession and their HB looks to redeem himself. The play is blown up by Wiscos strong DL and take the ball away again on another fumble, this time inside the 20. NDs defense is determined to bail the rest of the team out and forces another FG. 6-0 Wisco.
Both defenses did their job well in the first half. With a few minutes to go, the Irish decided to take a few shots. A 44 yard pass later and they are ahead 7-6. With under two minutes left in the half they strike again through the air, this time to the tight end who shakes a safety for a solid catch and run right down the middle. ND goes into half time looking like they have solid control of the game.
Defense still stood tall for both teams in the third. Both offenses struggled to sustain drives. The Irish lost their fumble prone starting HB for the rest of the game and were forced to go to the inexperienced RS Frosh backup. ND was making one solid drive when disaster struck. The QB misread the defender, thinking his TE would be wide open on a short out pattern. The route was jumped and a Badger linebacker took one back for and easy six. Coach Cieske chose to kick the extra point hoping he would have time for another score to take the lead.
The fight continued into the 4th quarter. Notre Dame did everything they could to control the clock and sustain long drives to keep the ball away from Eddie Murphy and the Badgers. They relied heavily on the run game, and because Wisco knew it was coming, had mixed success. However, they were able to convert a few tough third downs to keep drives alive. Late in the fourth, they hit paydirt. They were able to run the clock down to less than 2 minutes and get an insurance touchdown on a QB sneak from the 1. 21-13 ND.
Eddie Murphy came to play though and he wasn't joking around. He used his quick feet to extend plays and get his receivers open. He also had a few solid scrambles. But soon after getting into Irish territory, he extended a play a bit too far. While rolling to his right and throwing back toward the middle, Eddie got drilled by the spying LBer. Out for the rest of the game. Wiscos solid backup was apparently ready to play though. He went 4 for 4 with a touchdown to make it 21-19. On the TD reception the Wisco WR bravely went over the middle against the tough ND safeties. He shook off a tackle at the 2 and took it in.
ND wasn't sure what the Badgers would throw at them for the 2 pt conversion. Wisconsin had been mixing it up so well all game with run and pass. Wisco looked like they were coming out in a heavy package so the Irish sent out their 4-4 defenders. Unfortunately the Badgers were spread out. Coach HipHopp had to make a decision. Call a TO and regroup or trust his LBers to cover. Coach said "Screw it" and let em play. A blitzing LBer got in the young backups face right as he released the pass and it hit the ground at the intended receivers feet.
The badgers went for an onside kick, but they had no such luck. ND came out and kneeled out the clock.
Both teams were battered and bruised after this one. The coaches were dedicated the balance as both teams ended up with right around 100 yards rushing. ND had 195 yards passing and Wisco had about 170. Solid defense kept the completion percentages low for both. 3 TO's a piece as well. One big stat that was in NDs favor was 3rd down percentage. 6/10 for the Irish and 3/11 for Wisconsin. That made a big difference in sustaining drives.
Now the Irish have to prepare for a face off with Bama with a title shot on the line again.
