One to Enjoy | by Pat

There's plenty of time to dissect the finer points of the UCLA game, from the new linebacker starting trio, to the subpar offensive line play, to the fact that the Bruins might just be the first team I've seen that brings two mascots to a game (Joe and Josie Bruin). But for now, let's focus on that final, stunning drive and give ourselves just a few more hours to indulge in the euphoria surrounding the incredible win.

Continuing his excellent play breakdowns, House Rock Built has the final sequence mapped out. Follow along and get the who, why, when, where, and how as Brian spells out the latest surgically precise drive by the Irish.

Then check out this superb game tape breakdown by the fine folks at Footage from NBC cameras and the ND sideline cameras used by the coaches is spliced together with excerpts from Weis himself describing the final plays and the brilliant Don Criqui radio call of the final score.

As I said earlier, plenty to talk about from this game. Close wins over average opponents are never fun, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the thrilling ones. For now, we're going to sit back and enjoy.
