SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Blake Bell threw a 54 - yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in the fourth quarter and 14 th - ranked Oklahoma jumped to a two - touchdown lead in the opening three minutes and beat number 22 Notre Dame 35 - 21 on Saturday. It was the Sooners' second win over the Fighting Irish in 11 meetings.

The Sooners had three interceptions that led to touchdowns, including a 24 - yard score by linebacker Corey Nelson. Damien Williams, suspended the previous game against Tulsa for violating team rules, added an 11 - yard touchdown run after an interception by linebacker Frank Shannon as the Sooners went ahead 14 - 0.
The only other victory for Oklahoma (4 - 0) in the series was a 40 - 0 win in 1956 that remains the worst home loss for the Irish (3 - 2). The loss ended a 10 - game home winning streak for the Irish and ended its domination of a program that has just one fewer national title than Notre Dame's eight.
