Notre Dame breaks 50
It normally happens once a season. 50-points is a hard mark to pass. It normally means it was a blowout, or there was no defense in the game.
The Irish have already passed this marker this season with a 56-point performance against Wake Forest. They were close again with Virginia Tech and Navy.
This has the potential to be a heavy run game for Notre Dame. Between Williams and Jafar Armstrong, the Irish could find a lot of success. Not only around the goal line, but deep in downs.
It hasn’t been a secret that Kelly is comfortable going for it on close fourth down situations. It was something that FSU struggled with against North Carolina State and it could be what keeps a lot of drives alive for Notre Dame this week.
On top of what could be a big rushing game for the Irish, their quarterback is only getting better. The Northwestern outing was the least accurate game of Book’s season at 64.7 percent – still good enough for most teams.
Even with that, Book his coming off of career games the last two times out. Throwing for 330-yards versus Navy and 343-yards against Northwestern – Book is locked in.
The Irish could find a lot of success in the air against a secondary that’s allowed 23 passing touchdowns this season. Florida State is the second opponent that we could see Notre Dame dropping over 50-points on this season.
