Notre Dame vs. Clemson score: Live game updates, college football scores, NCAA top 25 highlights today

No. 4 Clemson has found itself struggling offensively yet again as the Tigers have fallen behind 14-0 on the road at Notre Dame while failing to move the ball effectively. Points and yards were hard to come by for both teams, but the Fighting Irish took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a special teams play.

Jordan Botelho blocked a Clemson punt that Prince Kollie scooped up and returned 19 yards for a touchdown to give the Fighting Irish an early lead. From there, both teams struggled through a series of punts before Notre Dame QB Drew Pyne finished a 78-yard touchdown drive with a 5-yard run with 38 seconds left in the half for the Fighting Irish

Notre Dame is 5-3 after suffering a couple of stunning losses to Marshall and Stanford earlier this season under first-year coach Marcus Freeman, but this could be a season-defining victory if the Fighting Irish can pull it off. Clemson is fighting for College Football Playoff positioning and can ill-afford a loss to an unranked foe.
