First Half Observations

A beautiful day in South Bend with the sun shining on the Golden Dome did not necessarily transfer to the field for the Fighting Irish.

• Marshall won the coin toss and deferred to the 2nd half

• ND produced a couple 1st downs with the help of catches by Lorenzo Styles

• Irish turned the ball over on downs

• Marshall had a huge sack on Tyler Buchner which seemed to give them some momentum

• Marshall scored a TD at the beginning of the 2nd quarter even after a huge stop by Justin Ademilola bur missed the PAT.

• ND’s offense picked up some steam in the 2nd quarter, also, with decent gains by Chris Tyree and Lorenzo Styles

• Buchner was intercepted by the Herd’s Abraham Beauplan.

• Jack Kiser had a huge sack on Marshall’s QB, Colombi, followed by another big stop on defense by Ta’Riq Bracy

• The Irish finally put together their best drive of the game with impressive play by Buchner and Michael Mayer

• Buchner finally runs the ball into the end zone for the Irish TD and the score is now 7-6, Irish.

• Marshal takes the ball down the field but is forced to kick a field goal after a strong stand on defense by the Irish.

• The Irish had a chance for a huge touchdown play with only seconds to go in the half, but Buchner’s pass was just beyond the reach of Braden Lenzy and the half ends with The Herd up 9-7 over the Irish.
