Notre Dame returns late blocked PAT to tie game

Momentum is a funny thing. Just look at Sunday night’s Notre Dame vs. Texas game.

Moments after D’Onta Foreman rushed 19 yards up the middle for a touchdown to give the Longorns a 37-35 lead with under four minutes to play, the Fighting Irish blocked Trent Domingue’s point-after attempt. But the play didn’t end there. Shaun Crawford alertly picked up the deflected ball and ran it 93 yards the opposite way for two points to tie the game.

The score stayed knotted up at 37-37 at the end of regulation and Texas eventually pulled off the upset 50-47 in double overtime.

What a weekend for special teams touchdowns.
