Notre Dame puts Wake Forest to Sleep!

Saturday's win for the Irish moved their record to 6-3 and they have won 6 out of the last 7.

With Bowl aspirations drowned for the year it's all about pride. And the 24-17 win over the previously 5-3 Demon Deacons give ND a fantastic chance at a winning season.

Wake took and early lead but a perfect pass from QB Tommy Rees to Tyler Eifert tied the scores at 10-10. Again Wake took a 7 point lead on a 2 yard touchdown run but again ND answered!! This time a 1 yard touchdown punch from Jonas Gray again levelling the scores. A poised Tommy Rees hit Michael Floyd in the corner of the end zone for the lead and eventual win 24-17.

Twice in the 2nd half the Demons had the ball inside the ND 10 yard line but came away with no points. Wake was able to pile up yards but the NDefense held garmy strong when it counted stopping WF from scoring at all in the 2nd half.

The passing game had its moments but it was the running back tandem of Jonas Gray (92 yards, 1td) and Cierre Wood (87 yards) that kept the chain gang moving. Although ND were the favourites and only managed to eek out a 7 point win they would also be buoyed by the determination and strength under adversity and will be looking to continue their winning ways this Saturday against the 2-7 Maryland Terrapins.

Until then hail to the Excito!
