Beyond the Boxscore: Notre Dame Delivers in the Clutch With Blowout Win Over Wisconsin

Bouncing back from a shaky third quarter, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish closed out the September portion of their schedule with a rousing 41-10 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers. The Irish trailed 13-10 in the first minute of the fourth quarter, but Chris Tyree‘s 96 kickoff runback injected the momentum they needed to pick up the win.

Tyree’s runback was followed by the Irish forcing four turnovers that were converted into 24 points to turn what had been a tightly contested matchup into a blowout. The win was a historic victory for Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly, who passed the iconic Knute Rockne for most wins at Notre Dame.
