Notre Dame delivered its second blowout of the season on Saturday afternoon ina 52-0 shutout of overmatched Bowling Green. The Irish offense did mainly whatever they wanted against old friend Brian Vangorder’s hapless defense while the Notre Dame offense notched its first shutout since a 37-0 (#rememberthesix) blanking of Michigan in 2014.
Ian Book had perhaps the most efficient day of his career with a 16 of 20 passing day for 261 yards with 5 touchdowns and 0 interceptions on the day. Those five scores were spread around pretty evenly with Book connecting with Chase Claypool for two and then Javon McKinley, Cole Kmet, and Tommy Tremble for one each.
All in all it was a great day for Notre Dame. They blew out a team they should blow out. They recorded a shutout. They got to empty the benches including Phil Jurkovec‘s first career touchdown pass. We’ll have plenty more on this one today.
