It doesn't go into detail though of how far into the 3rd Q it took ND to take the lead.
Sounds like the game was much closer than the final score would lead one to believe. BTW--Tennessee QB Jimmy Streater passed away in 2004. He led Tennessee over ND in 1979 in Knoxville. He was recruited to Tennessee from a small NC town and supposedly had too many demons in his life:
• No. 14 Notre Dame 31, Tennessee 14 (Nov. 11, 1978 at Notre Dame Stadium)
Tennessee lost despite a 299-286 edge in total yards, with the Irish making several big plays on defense (three interceptions and a fumble recovery).
Notre Dame's Vagas Ferguson picked up 97 yards on 20 rushes while Joe Montana completed 11 of 25 passes for 144 yards. Chuck Male kicked three field goals (from 24, 37 and 37 yards), with the first two giving the Irish a 7-6 halftime lead (UT's Frank Foxx had scored on a
five-yard run). Pete Buchanan (two yards) and Montana (five yards) scored rushing TDs in Notre Dame's 17-point third quarter.
Tennessee cut the lead to 24-14 with 8:10 left to play, after Jim Streater hooked up with Phil Ingram for a 73-yard pass play. Joe Restic sealed the win with a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown.
The game featured a coaching matchup between Dan Devine of the defending national championship Irish and Tennessee's Johnny Majors.
