ANIMATED: Dayne Crist Fumble Dooms Notre Dame Vs. USC

Here comes Dayne Crist of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, in for one snap with Tommy Rees temporarily knocked out of the game. One might remember Crist was the starter at the beginning of the season before it turned out he was really good at making bad things happen in the red zone. Like against South Florida, when this happened, and Kayvon Webster went the other way to help ensure the upset.

Crist got a chance at total redemption in the red zone. Notre Dame had the ball at the USC one yard line with a chance to tie things up for the Irish. It looked as if Crist would be able to get his one moment of glory.

Instead, this happened (if you can't view the animation, click on the image or click here to watch it).

Crist's derpitude in the red zone that turned into a Jawanza Starling fumble recovery return for a TD ended up being the difference, as USC maintained a crucial lead for the rest of the game on the way to victory.
