A receiver got loose behind the secondary, a pass found him as he reached the end zone. Text messages started flying around Philadelphia. "You watching the Notre Dame game?" The receiver, the touchdown-scorer that night, wasn't with the Irish. He was with the other guys, Arizona State. And he was John Rankin's kid.
