This was a true gut check for the Notre Dame defense...
You're playing the top offense in the ACC and maybe the top offense in all of college football -- without your top safety in a 17 - 17 game when North Carolina gets the 2nd half kick-off...
Inside the performance of the Notre Dame defense:
- 17 points given up -- to a team that was averaging 40.2 pts. per game
- 298 yards given up -- to a team that averaged 533.9 yards per game
- 87 yards rushing given up -- to a team that averaged 217.2 yards per game
- 211 yards passing given up -- to a team that averaged 313.67 yards per game
- 6 QB sacks -- to a team that averaged giving up 3.6 QB sacks per game
North Carolina only gained 58 total yards in the 2nd half!
