Irish Beat LSU, Win 10th Game

Irish Beat LSU, Win 10th Game

Trailing 14-6 early in the fourth quarter, Notre Dame drove 75 yards in 10 plays and scored its first touchdown of the game on a third-and-goal, 6-yard touchdown pass from Book to wide receiver Michael Young with 7:49 to go in the game. DRIVE: 3-73-0:35. KEY PLAY: On second-and-10, Book completes an 18-yard pass to Chris Finke to the ND 45 to set up the touchdown on the next play. Notre Dame's four series in the quarter began on its own 25-, two-, 13- and 10-yard lines. He connected with Equanimeous St.

The LSU defense bottled up junior running back Josh Adams to just 44 yards, keeping him under 3 yards per carry.

The Irish trailed LSU 17-14 with less than two minutes to play. The win breaks a nine-game losing streak by Notre Dame in bowls either designated as a New Year's Six or played on January 1. Inserted near the end of the first half to run the two-minute drill in a scoreless game, Book led the Irish to a field goal and then played the entire second half.

Guice finished with 98 yards on 21 carries, while Etling was 19 of 33 for 229 yards and two touchdowns. But after Monday's display in the Citrus Bowl, LSU certainly appeared justified.

Then came a jaw-dropping play that gave Notre Dame its first January bowl win since the 1994 Cotton Bowl.

LSU: The Tigers had a lousy day on special teams.

Feature Performer: Notre Dame's red-zone defense effectiveness helped result in two missed field goals by LSU.

Notre Dame linebacker Nyles Morgan did not start and had his captaincy stripped because of what the school called an "internal matter".

NOTRE DAME: Boykin 55 pass from Book at 1:28 (Yook kick). During spring practices, coach Brian Kelly will have to replace three starters on an offensive line that was considered the nation's best.
