“I’m so proud of the group, Mike,” Henderson said by phone. “You know how this is. It’s hard to see it end, but we gave ourselves opportunities against a good Notre Dame team.

“All season they’ve taken punches and responded, and I thought our defense to under 40 percent in the second field in the field, which is the only way you get back into these games. And we had multiple looks to take that game, and it would have been great.”
