The Notre Dame Fighting Irish struck first in their game against the Air Force Falcons. Quarterback Tommy Rees started the Irish on their own 19-yard line and jump-started the drive with a 23-yard pass to Theo Riddick. Riddick started the play in the backfield and was the man-in-motion when Rees snapped the ball. Wide receiver Michael Floyd delivered the block that made that play possible.
A few plays later, Rees threw a deep pass to Floyd, who came down with his 32nd career touchdown reception and the 7-0 lead. The play was reviewed and it looked like Floyd was out of bounds before the ball crossed the plane, but the referee upheld the call of a touchdown on the field.
Air Force turned the ball over on the following drive. Asher Clark broke off a big run, but during contact he lost control of the ball.
