It will be Notre Dame all the way.Lou HoltzI sick of this love fest by byu's media about notre dame.. Let's Go COUGARS!Michael EvertonSo is Tommy Rees playing a sign that ND doesnt think BYU is a threat?Drew TroutnerPredicting 23-10 win by ND over BYU. Nelson will turn it over at least 4 times like always. Bronco not good in big games with 4-12 recordKevin GrahamNotre Dame obviously saw the tape from the Oregon State game.Matt PetersenHadley is normally a great tackler...and pass defender...poor start by himBrandon GurneyBYU's secondary struggles continue...Jeff CallI think Brian Kelly watched film, saw they could throw up top an that's why Rees is the guy. #BYuSizzleBYU chooses to play coverage on third and long and Bills almost makes a huge INTBrandon GurneyBro. Bills with a great play on the ball. ND misses the kick. Still no score.Vanquish The FoeGuess Notre Dame can't find a kicker either. Never seen so many bad college kickers in one year!Kevin GrahamIndependent schools don'tbother trying to recruit field goal kickers. We're all above that. #BYUJeff HansenBrian Kelly tells @NDSideline that Everett Golson, as expected, will not play at all for #NotreDame today.Brian HamiltonWhat are you doing Riley?! Nice job Riley, I never doubted you... #BYUfootballDavid HoranGood comes with bad #RileyJuiceChristopher V. EngerPeople were estimating BYU would only get 5 first downs all day. Already have 3. #BYUJohn RichardsColor guy correctly calls BYU's offense frustrating but for all the wrong reasons.Evan HallThere you are Riley! (little kid voice from the movie Hook)Sean O'ConnellAnd there is Riley Nelson turnover No. 1. Throws behind Friel. Expect at least 3 moreKevin Grahambad throw by Riley, but Friel still needs to catch thatBrandon GurneyTypical of Riley Nelson on first drive: Makes plays others can't, then makes plays others wouldn't. #BYUAndrew AdamsThis is gonna be a lot like last week. Buckle up kidsNDEddieMacBYU D tightening it up. Ansah doing his thing and Kaufusi with the sack.Deep Shades of BlueBronson Kaufusi was one of Bronco Mendenhall's most heralded recruits. He has been terrific as a Freshman this year.Vanquish The FoeI told @BYUfootblog before the season started, if Tommy Reese plays BYU will beat ND. Reese is beyond awfulUtahManInAR#ND allowed Riley to escape the rush and prolong a play once today. Not gonna happen again. Quicker release, please. #BYULayton ShumwayEifert matches up well against whole BYU secondary. Even better against lbsSean O'ConnellBYU corners can't cover ND TE Eifert. Safeties can't either. Going to be long afternoonKevin Grahamnot much more Hadley could have done defending that pass...great play call and great pass to where only the TE could get itBrandon GurneyRees a much better passer than Golson, and he's making great throws against BYU's defense.Jeff CallEifert shows why he's all-american, tall, strong, fast and nobody on BYU's team can cover him. Ziggy? ND 7-0 at 1:30 first QDick HarmonCan BYU get Brandon Davies from the hoops team on a plane ASAP to cover Eifert?! No one on the football roster can!Kevin GrahamNotre Dame up 7-0 on BYU. 2 good defenses battling it in South Bend,Indiana. That's where college football starts and ends!#irishGARY RODERICKBYU offensive line isn't doing the job right now. Too many plays in the Cougar backfield.Jared LloydAt least Nelson has stopped trying to make plays while in the grasp and facing a dead play. Credit to RN.Dick HarmonRough first quarter for BYU. Only 40 total yards to Notre Dame's 147. The second quarter is BYU best though. #BYUfootball #letsgoBYUtv SportsND guy throws a punch. No ejection. Wow.Beanshould be 1st and 25 right now. worst rule in college footballPaul R. CherringtonBYU's Bronson Kaufusi beats ND's Mike Golic for a sack. Their dad's - Steve & Mike were Eagles' teammates & fellow D-linemen in NFLVai Sikahema"This is a good football.... Defensive team, BYU." -Mike Mayock Hahahahaha. #FactZach Bloxham love Doman calling a run there on 2nd and 6Brandon GurneyCan we please just let Williams run it all day? #BYUJohn RichardsYeah I think running the ball with Jamaal Williams might be a good thing. Good to see Doman has finally figured that out.Kevin GrahamIf BYU doesn't score here, Doman's fault. His red zone play calling is questionable at best.Kris KNelson threw it behind his intended WR againBrandon GurneyTOUCHDOWN COUGARS!!!!Jeremy KiddNelson to Hoffman for the TD. Notre Dame's streak is over (four games without giving up an offensive TD)Jeff CallFirst touchdown allowed by Notre Dame defense since the Purdue game on September 8th.Greg WrubellLove you Jamaal Williams. What a great drive for the [how old is he?]Vanquish The FoeJamal Willis 1994; Jamaal Williams 2012Jeff CallJohn Walsh and the 1994 highlights!! Man I want that LaVell polo.Mitch HarperVan Noy with the pick!!Drew TroutnerVan Noy gets pick on tipped ball. can't believe I am saying this... not Tommy Rees' faultSean O'ConnellBYU getting the breaks it needs to win this one...need to take advantage hereBrandon GurneyBYU defense needs to create turnovers to offset Nelson's mishaps. Got some luck with the tip but Van Noy there to make it happen.Kevin GrahamBrian Kelly said Notre Dame wouldn't fall into a trap game. Feels like Irish are looking into the Sarlacc Pit right now.Irish IllustratedBig series for BYU. If it wants to win this game, it needs to capitalize on the turnover in ND territory.Jeff CallPenalties hurting Notre Dame right now. BYU with 0 penalties so far. #BYUfootballBYUtv SportsTouchdown probably coming back on review.Alex Kirrynot a catch. Friel has some drop issues. He should have caught that. Had alot of bad drops last weekJan JorgensenWhat!? They called that a touchdown!!?!? What manner of sorcery is this!?Jay Eh Ess Oh EnCougar get big breaks on picked tip and defensive holding, and wins ruling on TD catch by Friel. Cougars 14-7.Dick HarmonNotre Dame changes quarterbacks. Andrew Hendrix immediately gains 14 yards. He hasn't played since opener vs. NabyPatrick KinahanRees has had quite a few plays where his recievers have been open on quick outs like that. He has overthrown them ever time.AlanBYU fans can take heart in the fact the Doman isn't the only OC who makes head-scratching calls ... why did ND stop going up the middle?Jared LloydAnd BYU defense holds. Missed ND field goal with 2:30 left in half up 14-7. Bent but did not crack did BroncoDick HarmonND QB Tommy Rees is more inaccurate than Riley Nelson. He's overthrowing his receivers by 5 feet, not even close. #BYUatNDLloyd Cole14-7 half. BYU played (and COACHED) a great 2 quartersSean O'ConnellStop it!!! This is NOT a trap game! BYU is better than ppl were giving them credit. ND is not as good as the hype (which never happens...)Trevor AmiconeShorten this game. Run. Run. Run.Vanquish The FoeThat "fumble" wasn't one of Riley Nelson's prettier passes. Should be overturnedPatrick KinahanOh Riley.. That wasn't a forward passChristopher V. EngerThat was a forward pass. Doman is Riley-proofing his offenseSean O'ConnellBall security, ball security, ball security, ball security, ball security. b-a-l-l s-e-c-u-r-i-t-y. Fundamental element of the game.Dick HarmonND should remain in possession of ball based on the garbage play design by BYU. What was that?Colin CowherdNot a first. Dangit. Go for it bronco.John RichardsRiley Stephenson is the 5th best punter in the nation averaging 46.53 yds per punt. He's averaging 51.5 yds today. #BYUfootballBYUtv SportsThe BYU offense may not have taken the ball in and gotten points, but with the help of the special teams they didn't give up field position.Jared LloydChecking the BYU fan's pulse. Feeling good or expecting pending doom?Kevin Graham@KevinGrahamKFAN Rileys still in...you know the answer to that. #BYUvsNDJeremyTommy Reiss has single handly made Notre Dame look mediocre. #aggravatedMr. MeehanIs there anybody at the Notre Dame game?...you'd think the fan base of a top 5 team would make some noise for their team hahaTyler GejoNever thought I'd be missing Golson. The Notre Dame defense has to scoreChris ZeeNo NBC, none of us want to know what happened on the play. Thanks for looking out.NDEddieMacIf BYU wins the game, anybody else think Notre Dame looks to not schedule BYU in the future?SizzleLoving the game so far. Doman is calling his best game in a long time. Love the variety.SamNotre Dame D is looking tired. They got their hands up on their hips...Cougars avoiding big Irish play to help home-team offenseJason Franchukand then Riley makes a throw like that on third down...his inconsistency is very consistentBrandon GurneyBYU's 47-yard field goal off by only 20 yards to the left. Why even bother at this point?Patrick KinahanBYU turned away on that drive as Sorensen misses a 46-yard field goal.Jeff CallSo... never kick it again? #BYUChase TroutnerI am almost certain that the BYU offense has a better chance of getting 6 yards than Sorensen has of making that kick.Evan HallMike Mayock says scouts are saying Ziggy may even be a first round pick. That loud scream you hear is coming from @GuntherKFANKevin GrahamWhat the heck? Please replay this, How was he not down?John RichardsFINISH THE PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!Paul R. CherringtonBYU D need to bow up right here.Deep Shades of BlueCougars dodge bullet with 55 yard run off a pile breaker by giving up just a FG. Still lead 14-10.Dick HarmonBronco is smartly bracketing Eifert in red zone. Tommy can't do.it without him. BYU d comes up big againSean O'ConnellNotre Dame tightens things up. BYU misses a field goal, ND makes one. It's 14-10 Cougars with 2:25 left in 3rd.Jeff CallBraden Hansen has a groin injury. Blair Tushaus in at Center.Mitch HarperNot that it means much, but Nelson is doing a better job of throwing to the sideline today. INT not his fault, but Friel's bobble. #BYUD. SeanBiggest plus from Riley Nelson thus far is he's not losing you the game. Can't win it though either. Game is all on the BYU defenseKevin GrahamHeckuva catch by TJ Jones. Nice separation. #BYUvsNDD. SeanCrazy thing is, these BYU fans are so nice, you can't even trash talk them. Ticks me off.Vic LombardiBYU needs to step up & win this one in 4th quarter. BYU's been good but not good enough in big games this year. Can't let that happen againKevin SchaeferTheo once again crushing it, but we're back right where BYU wants us now.NDEddieMacJoe Sampson was in the right spot to make that tackle. Just whiffed like many of the BYU defeners on that ND drive. Game over?Kevin GrahamPlaying not to lose isn't going to get it done. #BYUatNDAlex KirrySampson simply has to make that play...terrible whiff there and BYU now has to play from behindBrandon GurneyBYU defense looks worn out. The offense needs to pitch in right now. This is looking like last week all over again.Jeff RiveraRally in South Bend! BYUatND. Fighting Irish gashing #BYU's D (3rd inNation vs run, 68 yds/ GM) ND now over 200 yds rushing, lead 17-14Tom KirklandWell, holding call certainly isn't the way to start game-winning drive attemptDick HarmonDoes Riley Nelson have a Max Hall OU drive in him?Zach Bloxham Starting with the hold, BYU is fighting not only the Irish but the crowd, momentum and a potential melt down.Dick HarmonJust dumb to waste a timeout in that situation. BYU is going to need all their time outs in this game.Deep Shades of BlueWhat an awful timeout by BYU. Never seen THAT before. #Mendenhall'd Words can't adequately express how bad that timeout is. #BYUMatt ZemekLost of aaaaah in press box on that face mask.Dick HarmonRiley finds a way! Draws a facemask penalty!Sean O'ConnellIn the old days Riley Nelson wouldn't have run out of bounds. Lesson learnedPatrick KinahanOh my gosh. How do you throw that behind him? Ugh.Bryan ShumwayI dont know how Nelson missed that says the announcer who obviously has never watched Riley Nelson play before today.Drew TroutnerThat's a net punt of 14 yards. Not having a kicker hurts in so many ways.Layton ShumwayIrish immediately go to playing smash mouth football and will dare BYU to stop the run on a clock eater.Dick Harmonthat missed pass to Cody was critical. Might have been BYU's last chance to get points against this ND DefenseJan JorgensenSame run play and BYU couldn't get the stop ... not able to get off the blocks up front.Jared Lloyd#BYU missed tackle, #NotreDame first down...ball game? Looking like it.Matt PetersenND has run the same play 14 consecutive downs.Cameron Robinson@zbloxham: This really is Texas 2011. I am going to throw up. Yep. Exactly.Torrey EllisBYU's offense lost every game this season. Sad. And bizzaro.Ryan TeeplesToo bad BYU burned two timeouts earlier in the half.Deep Shades of BlueI can't decide which was more unconscionable: Bronco's timeout usage or Riley missing a wide open Hoffman for a TD.Evan Hall + Leave a comment Like that?
