The anticipated debut of true freshman Chase Rettig was cut short in the first half when Rettig suffered an ankle injury. Rettig was injured on a scramble that set up Nate Freese’s 49-yard field goal.
Sophomore Mike Marscovetra filled in for Rettig for the rest of the half with Rettig’s return questionable. At the start of the second half, it was announced that Rettig would not return to the game, leaving Marscovetra at the helm with the Fighting Irish leading 24-13.
Rettig finished the first half 5-10 attempts passing with 58 yards and a touchdown. Marscovetra was 4-7 attempts with 47 yards in relief. There have been no signs that coach Frank Spaziani will choose to play quarterback Dave Shinskie so far in the contest.
