Schmidt: This is a very tough loss
The Notre Dame defense played incredibly well against Florida State Heisman trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston and the reigning national champions. Linebacker Joe Schmidt starred on defense for the Irish, leading the team in tackles with nine and adding one interception. Still, victory eluded the Irish in Tallahassee as they fell 31-27.
