TWTW: Which Utah Team Is This...???

((HT: WSBT-TV South Bend))

Losing to Notre Dame the way they did...???

Prevailing opinion was that the Utes were still on a hangover after getting drilled by TCU at home by 40.

The Notre Dame student body was planning on rushing the field after an anticipated loss as the losing-est senior class in school history...

They may still do that, but not after beating Utah 28-3...

Here's the wrap from our friends at WSBT-TV

Here's a list of stuff that they broke Saturday...

The Irish broke a streak of 11 straight losses to ranked teams, which started with a 47-21 home drubbing from Michigan on September 16th, 2006.

It was the highest-rated team the Irish had taken down since before any of the current players attended freshman orientation - more precisely, a 17-10 upending of a third-ranked Michigan on the road in game 2 of the coach Charlie Weis Era back in 2005.

Saturday marked the fewest points the Irish allowed against an AP Top 20 team since a January 1st, 1993, Cotton Bowl win over 4th-ranked Texas A&M- also a 28-3 victory.

It was the fewest points Utah has scored since losing 17-0 to UNLV on September 22nd, 2007. That's a span of 45 games including Saturday.

It was ND's largest margin of victory against AP Top 20 team since October 12th, 1996, when Notre Dame beat Washington 54-20.
