The Irish were desperately in need of a play. Any play really and the defense stepped up to do it. Defensive end Isaiah Foskey, who has been an absolute terror for opposing offenses, rose up to the occasion and forced a fumble. Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder was the culprit and linebacker Drew White, for the second week in a row, was the benefactor as he scooped up the fumble and ran it back 28-yards for the Irish.
The play was a much needed one, as the Bearcats were driving and potentially finding the endzone would have almost ended this contest. The Irish will need to mount a big comeback but the are still alive.

The Irish aren’t done yet
This one's not over yet.
Cincinnati wanted to use the first top-10, regular-season matchup in program history as a chance to show it belongs among the nation's best before heading into its American Athletic Conference schedule. Ridder threw two touchdown passes and ran for score late in the fourth quarter as No. 7 Cincinnati capitalized on its big opportunity and beat No. 9 Notre Dame 24-13 on Saturday in a game the Bearcats hope can be the centerpiece of a College Football Playoff resume. “We didn’t just beat a top-10 team, we beat a top-five program,” Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell said.

The Boston Red Sox clinched a playoff berth on the regular season's final day and will host the New York Yankees in the AL wild-card game after coming back to beat the Washington Nationals 7-5 on a tiebreaking two-run homer by Rafael Devers in the ninth inning Sunday. Devers' second homer of the game — and 38th of the season — came on a drive to straightaway center field off Kyle Finnegan on a 2-1 pitch with one out after Kyle Schwarber reached on an error. It capped a four-hit, four-RBIs afternoon for Devers, brought teammates bounding out of the dugout and prompted chants of “Yankees suck!” from some of Boston's fans who could be heard throughout much of the afternoon in a crowd of 33,986 at Nationals Park.
The AL Wild Card race is getting hotter and hotter.
