Duke just absolutely took it to Notre Dame on its last drive. Redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones completed 6 straight passes to open the drive, then handed it off to Jela Duncan, who went untouched for an 18-yard TD rush. Just like that, Duke has tied the game at 14-all after falling behind 14-0 quickly. The Irish made several substitutions in the defensive backfield on that drive, and you have to wonder about that group's confidence moving forward.

Duke is set to kick off to Notre Dame here. We'll be looking to see if the Irish offense can get off to a hot start and establish the run, taking some pressure off DeShone Kizer. Defensively, can ND keep redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones in check? Moreover, can the Irish get a sack? They are the only FBS team in the country without one.
