At least there are masks and all undergrads were tested this week!— Mark D. Fox (@MarkDFoxMDPhD) November 8, 2020The concern about the possible COVID spread was also shared or mocked by many others on Twitter and other social media platforms.Notre Dame President the Reverend John Jenkins strongly encouraged students to redouble their efforts to mask up and maintain social distance as cases of COVID-19 have spiked, again, on campus with just two weeks until the end of the fall semester.As far as the game, itself, it t took four quarters and two overtimes for the #4 Notre Dame to upset the Clemson Tigers.It’s yet another regular-season winning streak destroyed by the Irish, who dealt Clemson their first loss in the regular season since 2017.rish quarterback Ian Book was never sacked as he threw for 310 yards and a touchdown.Notre Dame remains undefeated on the season and is firmly in first place in the ACC conference standings.
