Notre Dame Scores Fake Field-Goal Touchdown vs Virginia (Video)

Notre Dame Fake Field-Goal Touchdown

If you sat through today’s college football matchup between Notre Dame and Virginia, you were treated to quite the show.

Not only did you get to see Virginia take a one-point lead with two minutes remaining, only to surrender the game-winning TD to Notre Dame with 12 seconds left on the clock, but you also got to see a fake field-goal touchdown by the Fighting Irish on the very first drive of the game:

That’s holder/back-up quarterback DeShone Kizer with the shovel pass to Durham Smythe for the 7-yard touchdown. And what an important touchdown it turned out to be, as the Irish would eventually win this thriller by a score of 34-27.
