Tune in at 3:30 PM ET as BYU takes on Notre Dame. Patrick Pellegrini will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Good afternoon and welcome to Score Mobiles live blogging coverage of BYU @ Notre Dame!
Coming off a controversial win against Stanford, the will Irish look to get one step closer to that undefeated season that would put them into the National Championship game.
It will be Tommy Rees leading the Irish offense as starting QB Everett Golson suffered a concussion last week and was knocked out of the game.
Notre Dame are 11.5 point favourites with the Over/Under sitting at 41.5
It will be very challenging for BYU to put up points today as their already weekend offense now has to face one of the best defensive players in Manti Te'o
I don't often do predictions for these games but here it goes, Notre Dame 27- BYU 9.
They are just about ready in South Bend! The Cougars will kickoff to start the game.
Irish return the kick up to the 23.
1st and 10- Rees connects his first pass short to the left side. First down.
1st and 10- Irish go to the ground and its a great spin move by Wood who gets another first down and a gain of 15.
1st and 10- Rees connects with Eifert for a second time, this one goes for a large gain of 35. Irish now at the redzone.
1st and 10 at BYU 24:
Theo Riddick rush for 7 yards to the BYU 17.
2nd and 3 at BYU 17: Theo Riddick rush for a loss of 1 yard to the BYU 18
3rd and 4 - PENALTY - False Start ND
Must stop here for the BYU defense.
Rees tries to force the ball into a tight window and it is swatted down by the diving defensive back. The ball hits the ground and is not caught for the interception.
The Irish moved the ball quickly down the field but come up empty as the 40 yard field goal was MISSED by Kyle Brindza
1st and 10- Nelson does a great job to avoid being sacked on two occasions, he moves to his right and finds Hoffman for a first down. Great start for BYU.
1st and 10 at BYU 43:
Jamaal Williams rush for 4 yards to the BYU 47.
2nd and 6 - BYU gains 8 which is enough to move the chains. Ross Apo made the reception gettting the Cougars into the ND half of the field.
1st and 10 at ND 46:
Riley Nelson pass complete to Jamaal Williams for 11 yards to the NDame 35 for a 1ST down.
BYU continues with the hurry up offense. On first down they hand it off and pick up 5 yards.
2nd and 5 - Pass incomplete.
3rd and 5 - BYU converts as Nelson finds Williams for 11 on the screen
Riley Nelson with a huge mistake as he peddles backwards before going down for a loss of 16.
INTERCEPTION - By none other than Manti Te'o
Te'o continues to impress and that interception, his 4th of the year, will help his bid to win the Heisman
Irish take over from their 34
1st and 10- Irish go with an end around, they are stopped fro a gain of just 2
Notre Dame gets stuffed at the line on 2nd setting up a 3rd and 7
SACK - BYU answers with a sack of their own. ND will be forced to punt as the two defenses continue to dominate early on.
4th and 15 at ND 29:
Joe Romano punt for 52 yards, downed at the BYU 19.
1st and 10 - Nelson hands it off, Williams gets 4 up the middle.
2nd and 6 - Nelson throws incomplete to his left.
3rd and 6 - SACK - Another huge loss forced by the ND defense as Nelson goes down 10 yards behind the line.
Another punt to come. Fair catch called by Neal.
1st and 10 - From the ND 36 - Rees drops back and airs it up on the right side. Eifert goes up and gets it nicely for a gain of 29
