Irish are "winning" on the road
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Fighting Irish are winning on the road. Notre Dame is 3-1 on the road after winning 24-17 Saturday at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem. The team has an overall 6-3 record on the season. The Irish said Saturday’s win over Wake Forest was one that didn’t come so easy.
“I think we did a great job of sticking together and grinding one out,” said Quarterback Tommy Rees.
Team Captain Harrison Smith said after giving up a touchdown just 28 seconds before halftime, they were sent into the locker room with something to fight for.
“That just kind of left a chip on our shoulder as a defense we wanted to come out and shut them out the second half,” said Smith.
Coming back in the second half is when the Irish pulled ahead.
“The third quarter was the deciding part of this game in terms of our ability to put points on the board,” said Head Coach Brian Kelly.
