Irish on brink of upset

Notre Dame senior receiver Duval Kamara is ready to leave Notre Dame Stadium in style.

Kamara, who has been little more than a bystander this season, caught two third-quarter touchdowns as the Irish took a 28-3 lead over No. 15 Utah entering the fourth quarter.

Kamara had only seven receptions entering Saturday's game.

But the defense, which has been solid if not overpowering all game, came up with what will likely be the game-saving plays with just less than five minutes to play in the third quarter.

After Utes receiver Shaky Smithson spun away from Irish cornerback Gary Gray to reach the Irish 8, Notre Dame locked down on defense.

Two run plays produced a two-yard gain then a two-yard loss for Utah, and then Gray redeemed himself with tight coverage on the next two throws to Utah's DeVonte Christopher as Notre Dame forced a turnover on downs with 3:04 to play in the third.

The Irish moved the ball to their 35 as time expired in the third.
