No. 4 Notre Dame 29, Pittsburgh 26 (3OT)

Notre Dame survives. That was the story from South Bend Saturday, as the Irish weathered a ferocious upset bid from Pitt to keep their surprising national title hopes alive. Down 20-6 in the fourth quarter, Everett Golson (pictured) orchestrated two scoring drives, the latter culminating in a five-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick. But the drama didn't end in overtime. Pitt kicker Kevin Harper missed a potential game-winning field goal, and Golson clinched the win with a dive into the end zone from one yard out. Panthers running back Ray Graham rushed for 174 yards and a score.
