The Irish (7-0) gave up an offensive touchdown for the first time in more than four games, a stretch that spanned 17 quarters and an overtime session last week against Stanford. The Cougars took the 14-7 lead after an interception by Van Noy set them up at the ND 30. Nelson’s 2-yard TD pass to Kaneakua Friel stood, after a replay review.

StorylinesIN SHORT » Failing to score in the second half, the Cougars blow another opportunity to upset a top-ranked team, and they lose 17-14 on the road to No. 5 Notre Dame.
KEY STAT » The Fighting Irish rush for 270 yards against a BYU defense that was previously ranked No. 3 in the country against the run.
BYU can certainly relate.
