Comcast SportsNet will serve up a trio of Notre Dame programs Wednesday night, culminating with an 8 p.m. replay of Saturday's heart-stopping triple-overtime Irish win over Pittsburgh.
At 7, Comcast SportsNet will air Irish United, a behind-the-scenes look at the Notre Dame women's soccer program that takes on Milwaukee in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Nov. 9. at 7:30, Strong of Heart: Profiles of Notre Dame Athletics will air, featuring a segment on Manti Te'o's impact in the community and the story of Steve Boda, who has charted every play in Notre Dame football history.
And at 8, there's the replay of Saturday's game. Three things to watch for in the Notre Dame - Pittsburgh replay:
- Everett Golson's response to his benching was very good, with the first-year starter ultimately leading Notre Dame back from a 20-6 deficit to a win. His two-play, 50-yard touchdown drive capped off by his game-tying rush on a two-point conversion stands as one of his most impressive performances in a Notre Dame uniform.
- On Pitt's game-winning field goal attempt in the second overtime period, Notre Dame had Chris Brown and Bennett Jackson on the field -- and both players wear No. 2. That should've been a penalty to give Pitt a fresh set of downs, and it may have doomed Notre Dame's title hopes.
- Look for how well Pitt played in the first 45 minutes, but in the final 15 minutes plus overtime, the Panthers looked worn down while the Irish dominated both sides of the ball.
Also, be sure to tune in to Comcast SportsNet at 8 p.m. on Thursday for a replay of Notre Dame's 36-20 win over No. 5 Michigan from 1998 -- quarterbacking the Wolverines in the contest was Tom Brady.
