At the halfway point, No. 2 Ohio State is behind Notre Dame.

Don't look now, but Ohio State is down by 17.5 points at the break.

By scoring the opening points, Marcus Freeman's Notre Dame team did a fantastic job of gaining confidence and gaining momentum.

The Fighting Irish defence has really kept the Buckeyes' attack in check after allowing an early touchdown, as well.

Wide receiver Jaxson Smith-Njigba, who was injured early and hasn't looked right since, has Ohio State supporters a little concerned.

Things in South Bend are currently going about as good as anyone could hope for.

We'll see whether Notre Dame can maintain its defensive momentum and try to sustain a few more offensive drives to

leave Ohio with a significant first victory for their inexperienced head coach.
