No. 2 Notre Dame enters the fourth quarter to improve to 8–0 and with 15 minutes left to play at Chestnut Hill, Boston College 38–23, adding another win to their quest for the conference championship for the first time.
Ian Book Fighting has been outstanding in running the Irish offense, passing 267 yards and three touchdowns for 24 of 19 yards, while adding a team-high 67 rushing yards on eight attempts. While Boston College has committed to curb the rest of Kyren Williams’ efforts and the rest of that Notre Dame rotation, Book has paid the defense to sell out with a designed run that extended the scoring drive. This is a continuation of the plot that led to a 47–40 win against Clemson last week, where Book turned into one of the best performances of his career.
Boston College is not going away thanks to former Notre Dame quarterback Phil Jurkov, who continues to bring the Eagles passing attack to a life that has not been seen in years. But whenever Boston College went down the field for a touchdown to take a 15 point lead into the quarter, the Irish moved up to second place at the start of the fourth quarter, taking their total.
