Notre Dame Football: Three Things We Saw Against UNLV


Is it possible for a football team to win in dominating fashion by 23 points and still have the game look and feel like a garbage fire? Your Notre Dame Fighting Irish are innovating new fan experiences every week, and this Saturday they chose to do so by answering that question in the affirmative in a 44-21 win over the UNLV Rebels. I can’t think of a better way to sum it up than the following now-immortal image: There were obviously plenty of good moments in this game, in which the Irish quickly seized an insurmountable lead and the Rebels never truly threatened, but there were also plenty of moments that made the prospect of seeing this team go toe-to-toe with the Syracuse Orange and Clemson Tigers in the next two weeks seem less than appetizing. We’ll take a look at a bit of both in this week’s Three Things.
