In the first 30 minutes, the BC defense had been shredded for 271 rushing yards, including 167 yards by ND tailback Josh Adams. Wimbush had three short rushing scores before taking off 65 yards for his 4th of the day. Adams rushed for 229 in three quarters, the first time in the history of the illustrious program that two players have run for more than 200 yards in a game.

In a performance which nearly defies description, the Irish rolled out of their locker room in the second half to post a 49-20 victory, while piling up an astonishing 611 yards in total offense, including 515 rushing yards, which is one yard short of the school record of 516 the Eagles allowed in a 34-31 loss to Army.

For a half on Saturday there actually appeared to be a glint of hope for Boston College in its match up with Notre Dame at Alumni Stadium. "Those chunks are what turned the game, because it was a close game".

Notre Dame is now 2-1 on the season and will stay on the road next week to face Michigan State in East Lansing.

After stopping the Eagles on a fourth-and-1, Wimbush broke loose for a 46-yard run to set up one touchdown. How many games do you think they'll win? 15 Georgia last week wasn't devastating for the Irish, but a loss to a Boston College team that was blown out by Wake Forest last week might have been. Wimbush completed 11 of 24 passes for 96 yards, with one interception.
