South Bend, Ind. (FORT WAYNE’S NBC) – Bowling Green did not stand a chance against the No. 9 team in the country.
Notre Dame shut out the Falcons, 52-0.
For the first time since 2014, the Fighting Irish did not allow the opponent to score.
That was not the only record breaking performance, though.
Ian Book, Notre Dame’s quarterback, completed five touchdown passes in the first half. Book stamps the page as the first player in program history to do so.
Head Coach, Brian Kelly challenged his quarterback all week, prepping for this game.
“Definitely happy with the performance tonight. He told us to just focus on ourselves,” Book said. Something we really focused on this week was pushing the tempo and moving fast. It’s part of our identity as an offense.”
Book will feel more defensive pressure next week against USC.
The Fighting Irish return home, in search of adding another victory to the 14-game home winning streak.
