Note(s): The Cardinal continued their September run last week in an unlikely fashion. They found themselves down 17 points heading into halftime. The Cardinal scored, then recovered an unlikely Oregon fumble with 51 seconds remaining in Eugene. Jet Toner's 32-yard field goal as time expired threw the game into overtime, and Colby Parkinson's juggling catch, followed by Alameen Murphy's interception sealed the extra period win. 38-31. K.J. Costello went 19 of 26 for 327 yards with three touchdowns. Bryce Love gained 89 yards on 19 carries with a score. Kaden Smith caught six passes for 95 yards, while J.J. Arcega-Whiteside had four grabs for 84 yards and two touchdowns in the win. The Fighting Irish come in ranked eighth in the country (just a spot behind the Cardinal), and are looking for a National Championship bid. They are an independent, meaning they do not play in a conference. They had an easy time of it last week in a 56-27 win over Wake Forest. Ian Book tossed for 325 yards on 25 of 34 passing with a pair of touchdowns in the win. He also rushed for three scores. Jafar Armstrong gained 98 yards off just eight carries with two touchdowns. Alize Mack caught six passes for 61 yards for the Fighting Irish.
