NC State held strong with Notre Dame for three quarters on Saturday afternoon, but couldn't come up with the big plays late in a 45-24 loss in the home opener. Cory Smith and Michael Clark discuss the loss on the latest Postgame Podcast and look ahead to what comes next.

How much of the loss should be put on Brennan Armstrong's shoulders? What is the biggest issue for the offense's lack of momentum? Why is the defense struggling to make plays despite having so many experienced players returning? We'll explore all that and look at the positives -- yes, there were some despite the loss -- on this episode.
