Notre Dame vs. Georgia Tech: Fourth-Quarter Analysis

·1 min read

There isn’t a whole lot left to say about this game other than complete domination. Notre Dame entered its game against Georgia Tech as a heavy favorite, and it lived up to that billing. Nothing of note happened in the fourth quarter, but it was just as well. The Irish already had their 55-0 victory.

The fourth quarter mostly was just a series of punts. Howard Cross picked up his second sack for the Irish (10-1) in as many quarters, showing the Irish faithful what they have to look forward to next season. Sylvain Yondjouen forced a fumble on a sack of Tyler Buchner to give the Yellow Jackets (3-8) at least one defensive highlight for the quarter, so he has that for personal highlight reel. The Irish didn’t punt on their final possession, but that only was because the clock ran out.

Cole Capen was inserted at quarterback for the final play of the home season, during which he handed the ball to Audric Estime, who picked up the game’s final first down. It was the cherry on top of what was a fantastic day in South Bend. It’s too bad they all can’t be this easy.
