Ohio State's locker room was a whole vibe after its come-from-behind win over Notre Dame.
Moments after Ohio State head coach Ryan Day sounded off on Lou Holtz and others who doubted the Buckeyes' toughness in matchups with like opponents, Day returned to the locker room, where he pulled his best Ted Lasso impression and danced with his players to celebrate the team's massive win.

"I'd like to know where Lou Holtz is right now. What he said about our team, what he said about our team – I cannot believe. This is a tough team right here. We're proud to be from Ohio. It's always been 'Ohio Against the World,' and it will continue to be 'Ohio Against the World.' But I'll tell you what. I love those kids. We have a tough team," Day said before he ran to the locker room and broke out the dance moves.
Ohio State showed resilience when it drove 65 yards in 85 seconds to beat Notre Dame, 17-14, in South Bend, Indiana. The drive was capped off by a Chip Trayanum game-winning touchdown from the 1-yard line – a score that left only one second on the board and ended the Irish's chances to mount a comeback of their own.

Ohio State has now won six consecutive games against Notre Dame dating back to 1995, but Day believes the Buckeyes' 2023 win will stand out above the rest, and perhaps be seen as one of the best victories ever.
"I think it's going to go down as one of the great wins in Ohio State history," Day said in his postgame press conference.
The Buckeyes now enter their bye week with a 4-0 record. They’ll return to action in their fifth game of the season against Maryland at home on Oct. 7. Kickoff time and TV network for that game are expected to be announced on Monday.
