Notre Dame football: Irish survive major scare, beat FSU in OT, 41-38
Early Second Half
In the second half, with the Irish leading 17-14, the Seminoles got the ball, though at first, it looked like they would give it right back to Notre Dame. Corey Wren fumbled the opening kick off of the second half, but he was ruled down, giving Travis a chance to take a shot at this Notre Dame defense through the air.
Travis took advantage of the extra opportunity, dropping a dime to Ja’Khi Douglas for a 60-yard touchdown. Florida State would not convert the extra point, but was up 20-17 at this point, and had looked pretty opportunistic against an Irish defense that was ranked pretty high in the weeks leading up to the game.
Notre Dame wasted no time retaking the lead, and it was Coan proving that he is not just a ‘game manager,’ as he went up top to Kevin Austin Jr. for a 37-yard touchdown. New left tackle Michael Carmody, subbing in for the injured Blake Fisher picked up the pressure perfectly, and Coan let it rip on a perfectly thrown ball.
On their next possession, Travis once again was picked off by Kyle Hamilton, his second of the game, as he continues to cement his place as a top-5 pick in 2022.
