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