No. 21 Notre Dame rallies late, beats Purdue 31-24

Posted: Updated:

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - DaVaris Daniels made touchdown catches on two successive Notre Dame plays in the fourth quarter, and Bennett Jackson followed that flurry with a 34-yard interception return to lead No. 21 Notre Dame past Purdue 31-24 on Saturday night.

The Fighting Irish (2-1) have won six straight in a series that has been played every year since 1946.

Without Daniels and Jackson, it might not have happened.

Daniels outleaped one Purdue defender for a 9-yard TD pass to tie the score at 17 with 14:47 left. And when Notre Dame got the ball back, Tommy Rees hooked up with Daniels again, this time on an 82-yard catch & run to make it 24-17.

Three plays after that, Jackson undercut a receiver, picked off Purdue's Rob Henry and sprinted to the end zone.

The Boilermakers (1-2) led the entire game until Daniels made his second TD catch.
