I don't want to push Pete's excellent post too much further down the page, so this will be brief.
Blitzkrieg. The Irish turned up the pressure against the Bruins with the most number of blitzes run all year long. I imagine the combination of ND staying in the 4-3 and not the nickel most of the game as well as the presence of the inexperienced Pat Cowan under center contributed to the increase. The frequency of 2nd down blitzes blows away anything seen thus far this season.
