Notre Dame runs past BYU, 17-14

Published 1:02am Monday, October 22, 2012

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Theo Riddick ran for a career-high 143 yards, Cierre Wood added 114 yards as No. 5 Notre Dame rallied for a 17-14 victory on Saturday.

Riddick had runs of 55 and 27, the two longest rushes of his career, to pace Notre Dame (7-0), which is off to its best start in a decade and has a big road game ahead against No. 10 Oklahoma next Saturday night on national TV.

The Cougars (4-4) fell to 0-3 on the road as they surrendered a season-high 270 yards rushing by an opponent.

Backup quarterback Tommy Rees, starting in place of injured Everett Golson, completed 6 of 7 passes in the first quarter for 86 yards and a touchdown, completing four of those to Tyler Eifert.

But Rees went cold later and the Irish attempted only three passes in the second half.

Kyle Brindza kicked a 24-yard field goal for the Irish but he missed two attempts in the first half from 40 and 28 yards.
