SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Perhaps Notre Dame’s pass rush was too good. When fifth-year defensive end Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa got his hand on Kedon Slovis’ second-quarter pass, he also knocked the USC quarterback into Irish senior defensive tackle Jayson Ademilola. If Ademilola had not been there, Slovis would have likely ended up on the ground.

Instead, the sandwich kept him upright, and he could get a decent start chasing down Notre Dame fifth-year linebacker Bo Bauer, who had collected the deflection and taken off down the field with dreams of finding the end zone that evaded him two weeks ago when he intercepted a two-point conversion attempt at Virginia Tech.

Slovis caught Bauer, and the Irish settled for a field goal despite starting the next drive at the Trojans four-yard line after Bauer’s 79-yard return. In essence, Ademilola unintentionally keeping Slovis upright cost Notre Dame four points.
