Fighting Irish Athletics | November 22, 2015
Notre Dame made itself at home in Boston College territory. Taking over Fenway Park for a far-flung home game, the fifth-ranked Fighting Irish spent most of it on the BC side of the field, overcoming five turnovers to beat the Eagles 19-16 on Saturday night.
Three of the turnovers were inside the BC 5.
''It's like leaving runners in scoring position,'' Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said in an interview room ringed by Red Sox pennants. ''There's only so many times you can do that. You can't go down there and not come away with points.''
The Irish (10-1, No. 4 College Football Playoff) have won six in a row since a two-point loss to top-ranked Clemson. They will finish their season at No. 15 Stanford (No. 11 CFP) on Saturday.
''Got one more,'' Kelly said. ''Got to win it.''
