Ohio State had one successful drive running the ball in the fourth quarter, but otherwise the Irish made the Buckeyes running game look pedestrian.
It’s true, it’s true. Trust me …
So what does that say for NDs run game in that game?
ND rushed for 2.5 yards per carry. 76 total yards
OSU rushed for 4.9 yards per carry. 172 total yards
Ironically ND had a better yard per pass
average than OSU. 9.8 vs 6.6, the per catch difference is even bigger.
ND rushed 30 times and attempted 18 passes. (10 for 18 for 177 yards)
OSU rushed 35 times and attempted 34 passes. (24 for 34 for 223 yards)
