Guice finished with 98 yards on 21 carries, while Etling was 19 of 33 for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Jack Gonsoulin's extra point was good for a 7-3 lead with 11:37 to go in the third quarter. Etling 13-yard pass to DJ Chark to the ND 26. The drive was set up with a 35-yard pass from junior starting quarterback Brandon Wimbush to classmate Equanimeous St. Brown on the first play. Notre Dame took a 3-0 lead at halftime as Yoon booted a 46-yard field goal with four seconds to go in the second quarter. DRIVE: 5-18-2:20. KEY PLAY: On the first play of the drive, Book runs for 15 yards to the LSU 34.
Earlier in the quarter, Book found freshman Michael Young on a six-yard touchdown and then tied the game at 14 with a two-point shovel pass to junior running back Josh Adams that knotted the game at 14.
Top Moment: Halfway through the quarter, the Tigers had second-and-goal at the Irish two, but gained only one yard on second down and could not quarterback sneak in the football on third down. If the Notre Dame offense wants to be able to pass the ball adequately next season, it will have to look at Book as the leader. On third-and-19, Book connects with Boykin on a 29-yard pass to the Tigers 19. The Tigers drove 75 yards in 12 plays for the score. And LSU's Connor Culp missed a 22-yard field goal wide right at the 7:45 mark of the second quarter after the Tigers could not push it in on two shots inside the 1-yard line. Out of the wildcat formation, Williams runs for 10 yards to the ND 31. On third down, Guice is stopped inches short of the goal line after a 2-yard reception and the Tigers settle for the field goal.
No, the 2017 regular season didn't end the way Notre Dame had hoped. Book completed 14 of 19 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns.
