Temple shouldn't leave South Bend distraught. The Owls aren't the same top-10 defense from a year ago. But they had three chances to get INTs but missed. Need to play with more efficiency and focus.

Notre Dame proved it can build an offensive titan behind this elite offensive line and backfield. Brandon Wimbush is a fluid athlete who makes brilliant plays when he's not forcing things.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Credit Notre Dame's physical defense for controlling this game. Temple has advanced past midfield six times against the Fighting Irish, but only reached the end zone twice.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Temple's Kenny Yeboah dropped a pass in the end zone, then Logan Marchi missed him again on a two-point conversion after a TD. Sums up the night for the Owls. Too many missed opportunities on offense.
