Brian Kelly explains two-point conversion attempt in loss

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish lost a heartbreaker to the Clemson Tigers Saturday night. The game came down to a two-point conversion in the final seconds where quarterback Deshone Kizer was stuffed at the 1-yard line.

According to College Spun, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly explained the play that he called on the conversion attempt. He said that Kizer made the right call when he tried to run it in instead of passing the ball.

Brian Kelly said DeShone Kizer had the option to call a pass at line on 2-point conversion. "He made the right call."

The Irish might not have had to go for two had another call not been made earlier in the game. Early in the fourth quarter, the Irish trailed 21-3 when the Irish got into the endzone. Kelly went for two instead of kicking the extra point, which would have allowed them to tie the game with a PAT late.

The Irish must regroup quickly as they host Navy in a classic rivalry game this Saturday.
