Kyle Brindza wins it for Notre Dame.
Game is on the line for the Irish here. It's up to Kyle Brindza to nail this field goal.

Purdue 17, Notre Dame 17
Tommy Rees is set to enter the game for the Fighting Irish. I knew the time would come in this game.
Ho-ly cow. Purdue ties this game up on a 4th down conversion to tie this game up.
Well, this seems to be the game's biggest play yet. Purdue has to convert this 4th down if it wants to win this game.
The turnover bug has bitten Notre Dame for the first time in this game, as Everett Golson fumbles the ball deep in Irish territory. That's a KILLER for Notre Dame.
I'm wondering what the deal is with Tyler Eifert remaining on the sideline. Injury reports have not come out.
This is a very dangerous proposition for Notre Dame, as Purdue has 8:49 to tie the score at 17.
How about the block by Theo Riddick on Bruce Gaston? Yeesh.
Now the Notre Dame offense must respond after the defense gave the Irish new life.
There's no doubt that Purdue defensive tackle Kawann Short is going to be a first-round pick in next April's NFL Draft.
Notre Dame's complete misuse of timeouts is an area of game management that will need to be worked on this week, as stupid mistakes such as this need to be avoided.
In a one-possession game in the fourth quarter, Notre Dame is without any timeouts.
Could be a killer for the Irish.
We're feeling some nice flow from the Irish offense on this drive. And Golson appears to be much more comfortable in the pocket.
With the Boilermakers only down seven, it's paramount that the Irish offense responds well. Getting a score here to distance themselves from Purdue is critical, as the clock is ticking during the fourth quarter.
Notre Dame 17, Purdue 10
Purdue knocks in the field goal to make this thing a one-possession game.
Robert Marve is sacked by a group of Irish defenders, a huge play for the Irish defense, as Purdue is forced to bring out its field goal unit.
Poor tackling is yet another reason why Jalen Brown has not been praised by coaches this season. Also a reason that he took a redshirt last season.
It seems as if Robert Marve is set to reenter the game at quarterback for Purdue. Rightfully so, as Caleb TerBush has played poorly through the third quarter.
When Golson attempts to run up the middle, he has been eaten up by Purdue's large defensive tackles every time. Credit Golson for protecting the football, though.
The Irish have clearly missed starting running back Cierre Wood today, as Theo Riddick simply has a tough time running between the tackles.
Wow, what a poor decision by veteran leader Manti Te'o.
Notre Dame 17, Purdue 7
Kyle Brindza puts the field goal through, and Notre Dame leads 17-7.
To echo NBC's Mike Mayock, I applaud Everett Golson for throwing that ball away.
