Twitter can be a fun (or depressing) and brutally honest (or unreasonable) place during Notre Dame football games. That's why we open up this space for the #NDInsider Twitter Chatter following games.

During the game, readers are encouraged to send their thoughts and observations with the #NDInsider hashtag to be considered for our postgame fan recap. They joined us with their 280-character takes during the game.

ABC's TV broadcast had plenty prepared for the story line of Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec taking on his former team. Jurkovec gave the broadcast crew plenty of reason to talk about him early in the game.

Notre Dame opened the game with a 13-play, 70-yard drive, but it stalled in the red zone and the Irish were forced to settle for a 23-yard Jonathan Doerer field goal.

Then Jurkovec led a 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive to give Boston College an early lead. The drive finished with a four-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Zay Flowers.
