No. 6 Ohio State scores TD with one second left to beat No. 9 Notre Dame 17-14

Ohio State scored with no time left to get a 17-14 win over Notre Dame.

The Buckeyes got the ball back with 1:26 to go and just one timeout and needed nearly every second of that drive as Chip Trayanum got the ball just across the goal line on a dive play with one second left.

Ohio State needed 15 plays to go 65 yards on the game-winning drive that included multiple conversions on third and fourth downs. After failing to pick up a yard on its first two plays of the drive, Ohio State converted a third and 10 for 23 yards to Emeka Egbuka. Four plays later, Kyle McCord found Julian Fleming for seven yards on fourth and seven with less than 45 seconds to go.

Not long after that, McCord was called for intentional grounding and Ohio State was forced to use its last timeout with 15 seconds left. On the next play — a third and 19 — McCord hit Egbuka for a 21-yard game to the Notre Dame one with seven seconds to go.
