Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees struggled throughout the first three quarters before leading an 85-yard scoring drive in the 4th capped by a TD pass to Tyler Eifert, putting the Irish ahead 15-12. That would be enough to secure the win for an Irish offense that hadn't found the end zone since a 79-yard Jonas Gray touchdown run in the 1st quarter.

The win improved the Irish to 2-2, while the loss dropped Pitt to 2-2.
