The Irish seemed like they were happy running out the clock and taking a 10-3 lead heading into the half. With under two-minutes remaining, the Irish started their drive at their own 5-yard line. Back-to-back runs by Kyren Williams that went for 22-yards got the Irish out from behind the shadows of their end zone.

Offensive coordinator Tommy Rees decided it was time to open up the offense a bit and throw the ball. Quarterback Jack Coan had just watched Tyler Buchner engineer a scoring drive and he needed show that he wasn’t the only quarterback that could get the Irish in the end zone. Coan found a streaking Kevin Austin down the left sidelines and 70-yards later, the Irish extended their lead 17-3 over Navy.
