SOUTH BEND, Ind. (FORT WAYNE'S NBC) - On Kyren Williams' first touch of the football game he fumbles, but redemption for the Notre Dame running back would soon show up.

After Ian Book connects with tight end, Michael Mayer in the first quarter, Fighting Irish lead 7-3.

The Seminoles follow it up with a five-play drive and the ball goes back to the Irish.

That's when Williams takes off for the 46-yard touchdown run. The running back the team knows well from the first two weeks is still in there.

Williams finishes the game with 185 rushing yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns.

The Notre Dame running game took over in the second half, with an outstanding day from the offensive line.

The power up front becomes obvious on Chris Tyree's 45-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, to give the Irish a 28-17 lead.

Notre Dame doesn't look back in the second half, winning 42-26.
