Tune in at 8:00 PM ET as Notre Dame takes on Oklahoma. Andrew Webster will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Ok Arizona just upset USC meaning we're about 20 minutes until kickoff! Hope you guys are all fired up
If you haven't heard Everett Golson will NOT start for the Irish...Tommy Rees gets the nod under center to start this game...we'll see how long he'll last
How about that game from USC's Marquise Lee! 345 yards receiving! wonder if we'll see a performance like that in tonight's game
Oklahoma is just 1-8 all time against Notre Dame...kinda sad that these two historical football programs have only played 9 times in history. I have a feeling this one will be a good one.
Recovered fully from the concussion, i'm sure he'll see plenty of playing time
Seems VERY pro Irish in here...no Sooner fans?
The leprechaun is FIRED up...they are packed into Oklahoma Memorial and we're about 10 minutes from kick off
So now it seems that Golson will get the start for the Irish...Golson, Rees, hey you're guess is as good as mine!
Ok good, now we're starting to even out! With all the upsets today the stakes in this game have just ramped up even more. A Notre Dame win puts the Irish solidly in the top 4 while a win for the Sooners gets Oklahoma back into the conversation for a national title berth, although they'd need some big time help to see that happen.
Now if you haven't heard George Atkinson, kick returning for ND, didn't make the trip to Norman, he's out with the flu...see how that affects the game
Notre Dame won the toss and have decided to defer...Oklahoma will start the game with the football
We are under way in Norman!
The kick is retuned from the end zone by Clay but he's stopped short of the 10 yard linne
1st and 10 Sooners from their 12...Jones hits Saunders for a gain of 11 and a first down
1st and 10 Sooners...Jones hits Stills this time...that's a gain of 5 yards
2nd and 5 OU...Jones goes back to Saunders and he'll take it over the 40 yard line for another 1st down
1st and 10 Oklahoma...Jones to Saunders on a screen pass and Saunders picks up 7 yards
2nd and 3 Sooners from their own 49...Millard the fullback picks up 6 and gains another first down for OU
1st and 10 Oklahoma from the Irish 46...Bad snap....Williams has to chase it down all the way back at the Oklahoma 35...BIG LOSS
2nd and 29 Oklahoma...Jones throws incomplete over the middle...that bad snap killing OU's momentum
3rd and 29 Sooners...Jones from the gun...he throws to Millard who bobbles it and it falls incomplete...Oklahoma will have to punt it
Neal back to receive the punt and he'll call for a fair catch at the 21 yard line
That's where the Irish will start their first offensive series of the game
And it IS Golson under center to start it
1st and 10 ND...Riddick gets the hand off and he's stopped after a gain of just a yard
2nd and 9 Irish from their own 22...Golson hands it to Wood but again the Sooners defense swallows him up
3rd and 8 Irish...Golson from the gun evades pressure he takes it close to the first down marker but it looks like he's forced out short of the distance
He is short...so Notre Dame will punt it away
Oklahoma calls for the fair catch shy of their own 20 after the 3 and out from Notre Dame's offense
1st and 10 Oklahoma...Jones on play action goes deep to Justin Brown and completes it for a first down at the OU 35
