Irish Tops UNC in Surprising Shootout

On the same field where countless football legends were born, North Carolina discovered its offense and hung with Notre Dame in a game not indicative of the teams’ inverted records. The Irish kept the Tar Heels at an arm’s length, however, en route to a 45-26 victory Saturday at historic Notre Dame Stadium. In the end, inconsistent pass defense, special teams’ mistakes and several fourth quarter personal foul calls kept UNC (1-8) from having a chance to pull off the biggest upset of the college football season.
