ATHENS, Ga. – Notre Dame’s first-ever trip to Sanford Stadium eventually lived up to the billing. A game that displayed little offensive juice and stiff defense– and was seemingly headed for a commanding Georgia win -- suddenly got real interesting with two minutes left when the No. 7-ranked Fighting Irish got the ball back at their own 48-yard line trailing just 23-17.

That’s basically where the drama ended, as Notre Dame stalled at the Georgia 39 and never really threatened to score.
