Irish, Book, Survive Miscues

There were spooky things happening on Saturday in wintry South Bend. Notre Dame had committed three turnovers in the red zone and squandered another scoring opportunity midway through the fourth period with a costly penalty, and it looked as though the Irish were going down to a second consecutive defeat. The defense got the ball back one last time for the struggling offense with 3:22 remaining, however, and Ian Book capped a last ditch 87-yard drive with a seven-yard scoring run to pull out a 21-20 win over Virginia Tech.

First half turnovers kept the hosts from taking control of the game early.
