 After an incomplete pass on first down, the Buckeyes went for it on a running play, and on the other side of the loaded defense, only 10 defenders were shown for the Fighting Irish. Ryan Day, Ohio State’s coach, was fired at that time when it was over, and Luke Holtz, Notre Dame’s former coach who had called out the Buckeyes’ toughness earlier in the week, was going to see him off. 

Ryan Day Inquires About Lou Holtz’s Location

Ohio State
Buckeyes’ toughness earlier

“I want to know where Lou Holtz is right now,” Day said during a post-game interview. “He said something about our team, and I can’t believe it. There’s a tough team here. We take pride in being from Ohio. Ohio’s always been against the world, and Ohio’s going to stay against the world. But I’ll tell you this: I love these kids. We have an extreme group.” Notre Woman (4-1) started to lead the pack when Sam Hartman tossed a 2-yard score pass to Rico Flores Jr. with 8:22 left. 

Hartman then threw a 96-yard TD drive to the top for Notre Dame, making it 14-10. Fighting Irish defense came up with a stop at their own 11-yard line on the next drive. But the defense couldn’t stop the next defensive stop. Notre Dame hasn’t lost to Ohio since 1936. 

It seems Ohio State had control when the Buckeyes stopped Hartman on fourth and 1, and in the next drive, Maroon Harrison Jr.’s block of Trayveon Henderson on a 61-yard sprint from the sideline below made it 10-0 in the early moments of the third quarter.

Irish Stage a Turnaround

 A Turnaround The Irish finally got on the board when they came back from the brink when Gi’Bran Payne took a snap straight from center and scored on a 1-yard run. Hartman then threw a TD pass to Flores with 8:22 to go, capping an 11-play, 96-yard drive to put Notre Dame up 14-10.

 Ohio State: Kyle McCord made the biggest step forward with a win for the Buckeyes. Ohio State needed this kind of play from him, like the last series he played in. McCord threw for 240 yards instead of 37, with 21, and Henderson ran for 104 yards. Notre Dame: Hartman has completely transformed the Irish’s perception. His quick reads, accurate throws, and fast decisions are definitely strengthening the Irish. 

But with three possible undefeated opponents in the next three weeks, they need to beat Hartman with their best performance. The Buckeyes were 17 for 25 against the Irish. 

Fresh Injury Ohio State

Harrison suffered a leg injury when he slipped during Henderson’s scoring run. Harrison spent several minutes in the Buckeyes’ injury tent but returned in the next series. Notre Dame: When blocking an 18-yard run on Notre Dame’s touchdown drive, receiver Jayde Thomas also went to the injury tent. Next Up Ohio State:

 The Buckeyes will host Big Ten rival Penn State next Saturday. Notre Dame: Next Saturday, when they visit Duke, they’ll face a second-tier opponent.
