Irish right back in it

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Is there magic going on at Notre Dame?

The Irish looked cooked, trailing 34-13 in the fourth quarter. But then the Irish mounted a scoring drive, got an interception from Gary Gray and scored again when Jimmy Clausen found Golden Tate.

All of a sudden, the momentum is back on the Notre Dame side, and the crowd is feeling it again with seven minutes left. The Irish love to live on the high wire; all they could have hoped for in this game was a chance in the end. They've got it.
