FINAL—3OT: Notre Dame 29, Pitt 26

In one of the wackiest, most suspenseful college football games of the 2012 season, Notre Dame overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat Pittsburgh 29-26.

There were several moments where the Fighting Irish appeared dead in the water, but some strokes of good luck—and some help from the officials—allowed Notre Dame to escape with a thrilling victory and remain undefeated at 9-0.

On fourth down and Notre Dame trailing by 14 in the fourth quarter, quarterback Everett Golson threw it up to tight end Tyler Eifert, and a controversial pass interference call kept the drive alive. On the very next play, the Irish punched it in, and just like that, there was new life for Notre Dame.

Eventually, the Irish would tie the game and go on to win in overtime, but there were plenty of close calls and heart-stopping moments that will help this game go down as a classic.
