After skipping his season opener at Ohio State last weekend,

Notre Dame was to take over the business against Marshall this Saturday. Well, it didn't happen.

Marshall hit Notre Dame on the road, defeating Marcus Freeman's squad with a final score of 26-21.

Notre Dame quarterback Tyler Buchner struggled this afternoon.

He finished the game with 201 passing yards, two rushing touchdowns and two interceptions.

Steven Gilmore's late pick-six turns the game cold for Thundering Heard.

The reactions to the defeat of Notre Dame were quite amusing.

"What a big, big moment for Marshall and Charles Huff.

What a disaster for Notre Dame and Marcus Freeman," said Pat Ford.

Brody Miller tweeted, "Brian Kelly's back to old school,

Notre Dame is about to lose to Marshall at home. Hence a difficult start to both the terms."

Stewart Mandel wrote on Twitter: "Buddy, Marcus Freeman, is about to start 0-3 as coach of Notre Dame and lose to Marshall in his first home match."

No sugar in it, it's a really disappointing start to Freeman's tenure at Notre Dame. Undoubted,

They still have enough time to get this program back on the right track.

Notre Dame will look to secure their first win of the season next Saturday when they host Cal.
