It wasn't pretty, but Notre Dame scored three more points than BYU on Saturday afternoon in Notre Dame Stadium, hanging on for a 17-14 win. When you're undefeated, that's all that matters. The Fighting Irish trailed after three quarters for the second time in as many weeks, finally regaining the lead early in the final period on George Atkinson III's touchdown run.

From there, the defense stood tall, holding the Cougars scoreless in the second half. Notre Dame has now gone five straight games without allowing a touchdown in the second half.

It was by no means a perfect Saturday for the Irish, but they survived to head into next week's showdown at Oklahoma with their record still unblemished. Before turning our collective attention to the Sooners, let's take a final look back at the win over BYU with Notre Dame's winners and losers.
