We heard all week about how Notre Dame would have trouble running on NC State’s #6 ranked run defense. Welp, the Irish weren’t listening. Notre Dame notched yet another 300+ yard performance and another 20+ point win over a ranked opponent. Josh Adams padded his Heisman resume with 202 yards including a77 yard third quarter touchdown.
The Notre Dame defense continue its streak of holding opponents to under 20 points again this week with some suffocating run defense of their own. Julian Love gave NC State quarterback Ryan Finley his first interception of the season with his third quarter pick six. The Irish defense actually only surrendered seven points on the day with the Wolfpack’s first touchdown of the day coming on a blocked punt.
Notre Dame avoided a let down following last weekend’s blowout of NC State and nearly had another 30+ point victory on their hands had Brandon Wimbush been able to connect on a couple deep throws that were open.
We’ll have plenty more on this one, but for now, enjoy the highlights and continue to trust the process.
