Notre Dame's offense needed a spark after the past two weeks and it found one today. New starting QB Ian Book has been efficient and the Irish are averaging 7.1 yards per rush with five touchdowns. While many in the program wanted Brandon Wimbush to take hold of the job and upgrade his play after the end of last year, it wasn't going to take much for a QB change. With Stanford and Virginia Tech next, the Irish offense needed a game like this.
