The Notre Dame football team ran their record to 4-0 on Saturday inside Soldier Field, as they dominated the Wisconsin Badgers in the fourth quarter.

Notre Dame football: 3 statistics that defined the win against Wisconsin
Usually, when a team can win the turnover battle, they will win the football game, but that is not always the case. In fact, if the turnover differential is low, then strange plays could turn the game on its head, but that was not the case during the Irish’s victory over Wisconsin.
After forcing five turnovers, including two that went for pick-sixes, there was no way the Badgers were going to beat the Irish on Saturday. It was close until Graham Mertz started throwing his passes to Notre Dame football players in the fourth quarter, and they were waiting with open arms.
