Ohio State is walking away from South Bend with a win over Notre Dame, and it was one for the ages.

In the fourth quarter, Notre Dame clung to a 14-10 lead for much of the period. That included a push by the Buckeyes into the red zone when the team was stopped on a 4th-and-1 instead of kicking a field goal.

Fortunately for Ryan Day’s squad, the Buckeye defense came up with a defensive stop on the back of a couple of great plays by JT Tuimoloau. That gave Kyle McCord and the offense the ball with a minute and a half left on the clock.

McCord delivered, guiding the offense down the field, including some clutch 3rd- and 4th-down conversions. It set up one final play for the offense with 3 seconds left from the 1-yard line.

With so little time left, Day stunned everyone by calling a run up the gut to Chip Trayanum. Here’s how it went down:

After review, one second was left on the clock for a kickoff. Ohio State kicked it out of bounds and allowed Notre Dame to have one final play, but it was snuffed out without danger. The Buckeyes leave with the 17-14 win in gutsy fashion.
