The longest play of the game for the Irish came at a great time. After Purdue cut the lead to four points with a field goal out of the half, the Notre Dame offense needed an answer. They found it as quarterback Jack Coan hit Avery Davis in stride and the receiver pulled away from the Boilermaker defender en-route to a 62-yard score.

It was a great play call, as the Boilers were in man coverage the safety crept to far into the box and there was plenty of room for Avery to keep running. The scoring play gave the Irish a 17-6 lead early in the third quarter.
