SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Nose guard Louis Nix III having the highlight offensive play of Notre Dame's Blue-Gold spring game, rumbling in for a two-point conversion, tells a lot about how the Fighting Irish offense looked Saturday.
The defense beat the offense 54-43 under a modified scoring system, with linebacker Ben Councell tackling running back Cam McDaniel in the end zone for a safety and the defense had 10 sacks and two interceptions and kept the offense out of the end zone until the fourth quarter. That came when early enrollee Malik Zaire threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Prosise.
Coach Brian Kelly said he wasn't too worried about the lack of offensive production, saying the offense had looked better most of the spring.
Everett Golson was 6-of-13 passing for 98 yards with one interceptions. He also was sacked three times. Golson said he could explain why the offense struggled.
