Nothing decided after three quarters in South Bend

By Brian Bennett

No surprise at all that UConn and Notre Dame are tied at 17 heading into the fourth quarter.

With these two teams, you might as well start at the two-minute mark with no score.

UConn didn't do anything offensively in the third quarter but is tied thanks to Jordan Todman's kickoff return touchdown. The Huskies also got a goalline stand to force Notre Dame to settle for a field goal and recovered a fumble inside their own 15.

Clearly, though, the Irish are moving the ball more effectively now and have the advantage down the stretch. UConn will need a good drive or two before this one is over to have a chance to win.
