Stanford was forced to punt from their own 7 yard line late in the third quarter, and Notre Dame’s Chris Finke returned the ball 41 yards, giving the Irish excellent field position on the 19 yard line.

Luckily, the Irish jumped offsides twice, and the Cardinal defense held them to a field goal.

20-17 Irish.
