What on Earth was Brian Kelly thinking when he said this?
Notre Dame had quite the fight on their hands on the road as they took on the unranked Florida State Seminoles.
The No. 9 ranked Notre Dame fighting Irish squandered an 18-point lead in regulation, but a missed field goal by FSU opened the door for the road team to hit a clutch field goal of their own to win the game, 41-38.
Quarterback Jack Coan had a historic first start for the Irish, setting program records for passing yards (366) and tying the program record for touchdowns (4) in a season-opening game.
Up next, the Irish will return home for their home opener against Toledo.
