I love it when the projected and actual margins match up.
So basically, a) Notre Dame controlled this game, dominating field position and creating nearly twice as many scoring opportunities as Navy, and b) Navy threatened to win any way because of nearly perfect red zone execution (and a lack thereof for the Irish) and a couple of well-timed big plays. I only got to see the fourth quarter of this one, but ... that sounds about right to me. You?
