These three stood out in No. 23 Notre Dame's 28-21 loss Saturday at Pitt:
TJ Jones, WR: Another week, another strong effort for Jones, though his fumble will sting. Still, the senior captain finished with six catches for a game-high 149 yards and a touchdown, while adding 41 yards and a touchdown on three carries.
Ben Koyack, TE: The junior impressed once again, coming oh-so close to hauling in his fourth touchdown in the last five games. He will have to settle for four catches for 76 yards, as he continues to establish himself as another legitimate threat in the passing game.
Sheldon Day, DE: So much for the ankle injury. Day, finally getting a chance to play with his fellow first-team defensive linemen -- for some of the game, at least -- notched three tackles for loss and five total tackles after a week in which no one was sure how much he would play after re-aggravating a high ankle sprain last week against Navy.
