It's been all Fighting Irish against Texas tonight. Notre Dame just took a 24-3 lead with less than six minutes remaining in the third quarter on a gorgeous 66-yard touchdown hook-up from Malik Zaire to Will Fuller.

Zaire took the snap, play-faked to running back Josh Adams, and launched a perfect pass to a wide-open Fuller streaking down the right sideline.

It looked like the Texas cornerback passed Fuller off because he expected to have help over the top, but the safety was pre-occupied with the slot receiver and was way late in helping. 

Notre Dame is well on its way to being 1-0 in 2015.
