After QB Tommy Rees proved ineffective in the first half, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish decided to send out fellow sophomore QB Andrew Hendrix.
His first offense drive proved ineffective, but after the Stanford Cardinal punted on their first second-half, Hendrix mixed passing and rushing to lead the Irish to their score of the game, tossing a six yard touchdown pass to Michael Floyd.
With a 21-7 lead, Andrew Luck could not repay the Irish offense, leading to another punt. Early in the 4th quarter, Luck was able to lead the Cardinal into field goal position, but K Jordon Williamson could not connect on the attempt, leaving the score at 21-7.
