After three weeks of impressive performances, Notre Dame got a scare on Saturday afternoon from unranked Pitt. The Irish, more than three touchdown favorites, trailed for most of the game, but scored a go ahead touchdown with around five minutes remaining to stay unbeaten and keep their playoff hopes alive.

We’ll have plenty more on this one and the aftermath of a near disaster.
