Recap: Notre Dame steals win vs. Hokies, but questions remain

On a day where everything seemed to be going wrong for Notre Dame — vibes of 2011 South Florida were mentioned — at least for a couple of days Irish fans can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy a victory. Virginia Tech is a better football team right now than they were at the beginning of the season and they are certainly a better program than that South Florida squad, however, this was a game that — looking back — should not have been close.

Quincy Patterson was starting in place of the injured Hendon Hooker, and he did not look good.
