Buchner struggled mightily through the air in this game. This was his second interception of the afternoon after also throwing one in the first half.
Buchner beat out Drew Pyne for the starting job during fall camp. He and offensive coordinator Tommy Rees received plenty of criticism from Notre Dame fans for this performance.
Pyne replaced an injured Buchner on Notre Dame’s ensuing drive and threw an interception to effectively end the game.
He was 16-of-30 for 167 yards and 0 touchdowns at the time of the pick.
Notre Dame was a 20.5-point favorite in this game. This is Notre Dame’s first-ever meeting with Marshall.
