Eric Atkins hits game winning three in OT vs. Boston College

No Jerian Grant, no problem. Eric Atkins, who’s been Notre Dame’s best player by far since Grant was kicked out of school, put the team on his back again today and hit a game winning three with a second left in OT against Boston College.
