3 takeaways from their win over Boston College”

Notre Dame's Brandon Wimbush, right, carries into the end zone ahead of Boston College's Taj-Amir Torres (24) during the second half of an NCAA college football game in Boston, Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.

Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush had already scored from 1, 2, and 3 yards out when he broke loose for a 65-yard touchdown to help ice the game.

"Our defense ignited us with the 4th down stop, got some energy and I think when you make plays obviously that creates an energy and we were able to score". Running back Josh Adams rushed for 229 yards on 18 carries, making this the first time in program history that two players have rushed for 200 yards or more in the same game. "We were physical, made plays", said head coach Brian Kelly after the game. Their defense forced three turnovers and the offense was hard to stop if Josh Adams or Brandon Wimbush had the ball.

Wimbush's fourth touchdown was a 65-yard scamper through the heart of the Eagles, and it featured a fake, a high step and some serious horsepower.

It was the most rushing yards run up by the Irish in 48 years.

Notre Dame, after a tough home loss to Georgia, sits at 1-1 on the season with a hard schedule the rest of the way.

Wimbush fumbled on the opening drive of the 3rd quarter, leading to a Boston College field goal to pull the Eagles within a point at 14-13. Although Wimbush only had 96 passing yards and an interception, he overcame those shortcomings with a big day on the ground.
