Notre Dame vs. Georgia Recap: No.3 Bulldogs Survive Late Push From No.7 Irish | CBS Sports HQ

  • Published on Sep 22, 2019
  • After trailing at the half and taking a 13-point lead late in the game, No. 3 Georgia held on to beat No. 7 Notre Dame 23-17 in Athens, Georgia on Saturday night. The only matchup between top-10 ranked teams on the day was every bit as close as the final score suggests. Notre Dame had a chance to win in the final minute, but Georgia's defense ultimately held strong as Fighting Irish quarterback Ian Book heaved up a prayer on fourth down that wasn't answered with the ball knocked to the turf.
    Jake Fromm's final stat line in this statement win for the Bulldogs will not wow man -- 187 yards and one touchdown -- but he made a number of huge throws in the second quarter that helped Georgia take control of the game. Book finished with 275 yards passing and had two touchdowns, but he also threw two costly interceptions that loomed large in a one-possession game.

    It seems like on the very last offensive play for Notre Dame one of the O-linemen let a Georgia rusher run right by him without even trying to block him.. what's up with that?

    Georgia is and will be one of the greatest teams in college football for quite awhile. It’s only a matter of time when they win a few more championships. You mark my words on that. They have an amazing recruitment class every year and one of the best coaches who already has national championships under his belt. So, be on the lookout for this team to win and win big in the future.

    Ill admit that 1 of 2 of those ND players dropping was just an attempt to stall, but if SEC officials will allow LSU players to drop to the floor on more than 5 occasions to stall drives vs Texas than its all good!!

      Gamecock Nation Aye just giving me more hope lmao 😂 they lost to South Carolina who has had a terrible season and the refs damn near gave Georgia the game but they still couldn’t finish it. Congratulations on the win brother, every time Georgia loses it’s a celebration from me! 👍🏽 Gonna be an easy dub for Auburn 😉 hopefully lol

      The Jigglenaut Yikes 😂. georgia doesn’t have the oline for auburn’s defense atm. auburn’s winning easily just like they did a couple years ago. and then winning again in the conference championship this time 😉 georgia played this bad against notre dame who isn’t that good. Auburn’s gucci lmao

    • The Jigglenaut
      The Jigglenaut 27 days ago

      Eh its hard to say. Auburn looks decent but they have a lot of exploitable issues on their O and D. It'll probably be a close game, but I doubt Auburn is good enough to kill UGA lol

    ND played a bad game in a hostile environment. GA was down halfway through the third quarter. 2 int’s, 1 was heroic and the other off a drop. Played in South Bend.....ND wins 30-17. Either ND is surprisingly Elite or GA is seriously overrated.

    • The Jigglenaut
      The Jigglenaut 27 days ago

      UGA played a pretty bad game too, honestly probably worse (Especially giving ND that free early TD off the special team's mistake). The game would have been close, but in no world does ND win by over a TD, that's just dreaming. I would say both are probably overrated though.

      NDFOOTBALL #1 27 days ago

      They're both overrated .. 💯🍀🍀🍀

  • Brian Patrick

    Ok fellas. I was thinking ND was going to win. Georgia is a great football tram. The ND defense really stuck it to them. Georgias defense was also very good. However. ND QB Ian Book did not play to his ability. He missed open receivers of which credit is due to Georgia defense in some part. HE threw a few interceptions and missed some first downs. I think two of those first downs were play calling all the way. This game was NDs to win and I was truly surprised by that. ND in Georgias house really was not to far from being the victor. and lets not forget about the glaring interference call to end the game. It was such a pull on he receiver that it got overlooked. Pulled him back and down by the shoulder pads from the back without a whisper. Just some food for thought about how good ND really is. This game was certainly full of mistakes and mosques on both sides. GO ND.

    • The Jigglenaut
      The Jigglenaut 27 days ago

      ND is a good team, but ND got away with a few pass interference calls as well, one of which would have resulted in a UGA TD. I think if both PIs were called it would have been the same result tbh.

    uga couldnt have made this a more frustrating game even if thats what there intent in the game plan was to do....catches there dropped for a td or two - game plan esp first half was horrid - you know a team is bad stopping the run and you dont run it with your all american back wth - they did everything they could to help ND stay in this game an potentially win it - kirby has got to learn when to be aggressive and when to lay back - he doesnt seem to get that yet - uga is super talented but this coaching staff concerns me and ultimately if they dont win big this that staff will be the reason why
