A block punt returned for a touchdown started the comeback. Montana connected on a two point conversion, but it would be more accurate to say he led them back from being 34-20 rather than 34-12.

Montana actually fumbled with a couple minutes left. The big break came for ND when Houston went for it on 4th-1 from their own 29. That gave Montana a short field for the final touchdown.

On ND's three touchdown drives in the fourth quarter, Montana completed a total of just four passes (plus two 2-pt conversions).
