Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma 2012 score update: Sooners trailing 10-6 after 3 quarters

No. 5 Notre Dame continues to lead No. 8 Oklahoma, 10-6, after three quarters on Saturday night.

The Irish led 10-6 at the end of the first half thanks to a strong defensive effort that forced several long Sooner drives to end in field goals. Notre Dame's defense forced the Sooners to become one-dimensional on offense as the Oklahoma rushing attack failed to muster any progress. While quarterback Landry Jones was able to move the ball in the second quarter, the Sooners were forced to settle for a field after having first-and-goal late in the half.

The struggles would continue in the second half, when the Sooners were forced to punt on their lone possession of the third quarter. Notre Dame held the ball for over 11 minutes in the quarter yet walked away with zero points, due mostly to missed field goal from 35 yards out.

Through three quarters, Landry is 24-of-33 for 233 yards, with Oklahoma managing just eight yards total rushing in the game thus far.
