Notre Dame Fighting Irish Game Notes
Drew Pyne got the call to start and finished by completing 17-of-23 pass attempts for 150 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-17 win over California on Saturday, Sept. 17. With Tyler Buchner sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury, it's Pyne's job for the time being. It was choppy at times where he was sacked twice, but Pyne got the victory. Despite facing an undefeated North Carolina team on Saturday, Sept. 24, the Tar Heels passing defense is one of the worst in FBS, allowing 275 yards per game.
