Notre Dame and North Carolina State are battling one another, Hurricane Matthew and a soggy field, so it’s not surprising that it hardly resembles football.
The field resembles a murky bog. Players have been slipping, sliding and struggling to play in the horrible conditions.
Here is a quick look at Notre Dame center Sam Mustipher failing to even snap the ball to DeShone Kizer.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the game was tied up at 3-3. Neither quarterback could make much happen through the air, combining for 65 yards at this point in the game.
Notre Dame 3, NC State 3. The forward pass has proven ineffective underwater. #NDvsNCSU
