Georgia beat Notre Dame 23-17 Saturday night in front of an amazing Sanford Stadium environment.

It was a hard-fought and physical matchup between two big-time programs. Georgia proved folks right by taking down the Irish, but Notre Dame certainly earned some respect in the loss.

One point in the game, however, it appeared that Notre Dame faked at least one injury to slow down Georgia’s offensive momentum. Late in the third quarter, Irish defender Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah was pulled down by a teammate after appearing to get instruction from the sideline. QB Jake Fromm had completed three straight first down passes for a combined 36 yards and the offense was moving. When Owusu-Koramoah went down, fans let out a chorus of boos. It temporarily stalled a promising scoring drive for Georgia as it moved 53 yards in 2:36. The Bulldogs ultimately kicked a 31-yard field goal.

Later in the game, Notre Dame defender Asmar Bilal also went down, and Fromm was visibly upset.

Brian Kelly was asked about his players faking injuries Sunday evening on his teleconference, and he basically gave a non-answer and criticized the reporter for asking the question.

Well, Notre Dame received the SEC Shorts treatment this week, as the online comedy series produced a hilarious take on the subject. The Athens ER was ready for all those “fake” injuries.
