  2020 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL THIRD TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): QB - Ian Book, Notre Dame, 73,...The winningest quarterback in Notre Dame history (30-4), Book has completed 201 passes for 2,601 yards and 15 touchdowns, also adding 101 rushes for 430 yards (ranks third on the team). The graduate student and team captain won the 2020 Pop Warner National College Football Award, and is a finalist for the Manning Award and Senior CLASS Award, as well as a semifinalist for the Maxwell, Davey O'Brien and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm awards. - Notre Dame Football

With eight rushing TDs in 2020, he ranks third among all Power 5 quarterbacks in season rushing touchdowns. - Notre Dame Football

  2020 DAVEY O'BRIEN AWARD SEMIFINALIST: Ian Book, Notre Dame, Sr.,...Book has led the Irish to a perfect 10-0 record in 2020, becoming the all-time winningest quarterback in Notre Dame history. He boasts a 30-3 (.909) record as a starter, and Book is one of just two FBS quarterbacks with a win rate above .900. He has completed 181 passes for 2,382 yards and 15 touchdowns, with just two interceptions, in 2020, and has rushed for 465 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. - Notre Dame Football

  On the team's Senior Day, this was Book's day. It was a culmination of five years of work and three years of staggering success. The fifth-year captain from El Dorado Hills, Calif., walked into Notre Dame Stadium a relative recruiting unknown from the West Coast. Saturday night, the one-time Washington State commit walked out of Notre Dame Stadium the winningest quarterback in program history. "It really just means a lot," Book said in a university statement about his place in school history. "It's a dream come true just to be able to attend Notre Dame and have a good career." Good? Now at 30-3 and counting, including the past 16 in a row overall and 15 straight at home, Book has won more than anyone who's played the position at Notre Dame. He's won more than Heisman Trophy winners. He's won more than first-round NFL draft picks. He's won more than future NFL Hall-of-Famers. He's won. "He," said Irish coach Brian Kelly, "continues to get better."

Book didn't do the standard Zoom call with the media after this one. If he did, he'd have downplayed being the center of any attention, let alone a record holder. The spotlight's not his style. Never has been. For him, it's about having the privilege to play the position. It's about being a piece to the puzzle that's been properly put together to push the Irish to undefeated seasons two of the past three years. It's about being part of a program that has won at least 10 games now four years running, a first in program history. - South Bend Tribune

  Ian Book threw three touchdown passes and ran for two scores in his final home game at Notre Dame, leading the second-ranked Fighting Irish to a 45-21 victory against Syracuse on Saturday. The fifth-year senior led the Irish to a victory as a starter for the 30th time, the most ever for a Notre Dame quarterback. The Irish (10-0, 9-0 ACC, CFP No. 2) ran their winning streak to 16 games, best on the country, and their home winning streak to 24.

Next up for the Irish, who are playing this season in a pandemic as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, is the Dec. 19 league championship game in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will be a rematch against No. 4 Clemson if the Tigers beat Virginia Tech later Saturday. Book was 24 for 37 for 285 yards, with touchdown passes of 21, 28 and 26 to Javon McKinley, who had seven receptions for 111 yards. Book scored on runs of 28 and 17 yards and rushed for 53 yards while improving to 30-3 as a starter and passing Notre Dame greats Tom Clements, Ron Powlus and Brady Quinn for most victories as a starting quarterback. - Notre Dame/AP College

  No. 2 Notre Dame wrapped up a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game by virtue of the league shuffling its schedule Tuesday to create an open date for the Fighting Irish and No. 4 Clemson before their likely rematch on Dec. 19. The ACC announced Notre Dame's game against Wake Forest, which was rescheduled for Dec. 12 after being postponed in late September, will not be played. The first-place Irish (9-0, 8-0 ACC) host Syracuse on Saturday to complete their regular season. Notre Dame holds all possible tiebreakers over title game contenders Clemson (8-1, 7-1) and Miami (7-1, 6-1) even if it loses to Syracuse. Clemson's postponed game at Florida State will also not be made up. The Tigers can clinch a spot in the championship game with a victory at Virginia Tech on Saturday. - AP College Football

  He's become a transformative player, shattering perceptions and setting new expectations for what his ceiling might look like now that he's thoroughly shattered the glass one that was fitted for him. The context of his numbers means so much more than the numbers themselves - not that 23-of-33 passing for 279 yards and a TD and 48 yards rushing on eight carries qualify as pedestrian. Nor the fact he's now gone 237 pass attempts without an interception, breaking Brady Quinn's school record of 226 (set in 2006).

What doesn't jump off the stat sheet does jump off the tape. The clutch decisions. The Patrick Mahomes-type flips. The escapability to turn potential setbacks into wow plays. "Ian Book was as good tonight as anybody I've ever seen," said Brown, the longest-tenured active FBS coach at 32 years. "We couldn't tackle him. We harassed him. We had people around him. There could have been six sacks. We could not get him on the ground. "Then he made some unbelievable plays on third down. I don't know if he's in the Heisman race or not, but he should be." - South Bend Tribune

  Ian Book kept No. 2 Notre Dame's offense moving while the Fighting Irish defense locked down Sam Howell and No. 25 North Carolina's potent offense for the final three quarters in a 31-17 victory on Friday. Book threw for 279 yards and a score and ran for 48 yards for the Fighting Irish (9-0, 8-0 ACC, No. 2 CFP), using his mobility and elusiveness to keep plays alive on a night when both offenses frequently faced long fields.

Receiver Ben Skowronek got Notre Dame its first lead with his 13-yard run around the right side midway through the third quarter. Kyren Williams ran for 124 yards - including a 47-yarder with about 5 1/2 minutes left as the Irish burned clock and sealed the game Williams closed that drive with his second rushing TD, a clinching 1-yarder with 1:20 left that kept the Fighting Irish alone atop the ACC standings ahead of No. 4 Clemson and No. 10 Miami. More impressively, though, was a defensive effort that forced Howell and the high-scoring Tar Heels to work for every gain after the opening quarter. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book passed for three touchdowns and ran for another and No. 2 Notre Dame overcame an early deficit to roll to a 45-31 victory over Boston College on Saturday. The Fighting Irish's eighth straight win in the series between the FBS's only Catholic institutions gave coach Brian Kelly his 100th career victory at the school, tying him with Lou Holtz for second all-time. He is now just five behind coach Knute Rockne. Coming off a thrilling victory against Clemson, Notre Dame (8-0, 7-0 ACC) racked up a season-high 561 total yards against BC led by Book, who finished 20 of 27 for 283 yards.

He also ran for a 85 yards and a touchdown. Ben Skowronek caught all three of Book's TD passes, but also had one of three Notre Dame fumbles on the day. C'Bo Flemister ran for two touchdowns before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with an apparent left leg injury. Phil Jurkovec, a transfer from Notre Dame playing against his former team for the first time, finished 18 of 40 for 272 yards, a touchdown and interception for Boston College (5-4, 4-4). The Eagles hung tough in the first half, recovering a pair of Notre Dame fumbles, but they scored only six points of the miscues. Their defense also had few answers for Book, who took advantage of the Irish's length at receiver throughout the game to produce five pass plays of 20 or more yards. - AP College Football

  Ian Book passed for 312 yards and three touchdowns - two of them long catch-and-runs to graduate transfer Ben Skowronek - and No. 3 Notre Dame overwhelmed reeling Pittsburgh 45-3 on Saturday. A week after scuffling its way past Louisville, Notre Dame (5-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) had no such issues while handling the Panthers (3-4, 2-4) their fourth consecutive loss. Book hit Skowronek for a 34-yard score on Fighting Irish's first possession and Pitt - playing without injured senior quarterback Kenny Pickett for a second straight week - simply could not keep up. Notre Dame's massive offensive line held its own against one of the nation's best pass-rushing teams and when Book had time, he had no trouble finding teammates open downfield. Book averaged 19.5 yards per completion and often had to do little more than flip the ball up and let his playmakers do the rest. He connected with Skowronek for a 73-yard score in the second quarter, with the 6-foot-3 Skowronek doing most of the work as he out-jumped 5-9 Pitt defensive back Marquis Williams for the ball then sprinted to the end zone to make it 14-3. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Book. The quarterback. The three-year starter who doesn't always do this or do that to everyone's liking. All he does is win. Like Saturday. Book completed a pair of critical third-down tosses late in the fourth quarter. He found Javon McKinley for seven yards across the middle on third and six. He found Ben Skowronek for 12 yards on a crossing route on third and seven. It kept the chains moving. It kept the clock running. It kept that Irish sideline believing. "As a quarterback, it's up to me to spread the ball around the field and be smart with it," Book said. "I just want to rally the guys. That's my job."

That's also Book, now a staggering 24-3 as the starter. That's who he's always been. He also had the pocket presence earlier in the third quarter when everything broke down and nothing good offered itself, to just tuck it and run and find the end zone for the go-ahead score. The only touchdown for the Irish. Notre Dame needed that from Book. He delivered. But what else is new? "Look, he wins," Kelly said. "When the game's on the line, you can count on Ian Book to come up and make big plays for us. That's a good feeling to have." - South Bend Tribune

  Kyren Williams ran for 127 yards and Ian Book had a 13-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter that gave No. 4 Notre Dame the lead for good as the Fighting Irish held off Louisville with a 12-7 Saturday. Williams ran 25 times and had his third 100-yard game of the season as the Irish (4-0, 3-0 ACC) won their 22nd straight at Notre Dame Stadium. It came against an inspired 3-4 Louisville defense that spent most of the afternoon on the field. Notre Dame controlled the clock for 36:15 including a game-ending 14-play drive that burned the final 7:55.

Book completed 11 of 19 for 106 yards and ran 12 times for 47 yards. The loss was the fourth straight for the Cardinals (1-4, 0-4), who got 118 yards passing and 49 rushing from Malik Cunningham. Javian Hawkins, the nation's No. 3 rusher coming into the game, was limited to 51 yards on 15 carries. The Irish, who outgained the Cardinals 338-219, controlled the clock for 21:57 of the first half, running 45 plays and gaining 212 yards to Louisville's 23 plays for 90. But all that got Notre Dame was a 6-0 halftime lead on Jonathan Doerer's field goals of 32 and 30 yards. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book ran for three first-half touchdowns and No. 7 Notre Dame won its 20th straight home game 52-0 against South Florida on Saturday. The Fighting Irish (2-0) led 35-0 at halftime and for the second year in a row posted a 52-point shutout. Book capped the opening drive with 4-yard touchdown run and freshman Chris Tyree scored from a yard out about five minutes later. It never got better for the first-year coach Jeff Scott's Bulls (1-1), who were a late add to Notre Dame's schedule after the Irish joined the Atlantic Coast Conference for this off season in a pandemic. C'Bo Flemister ran for a career-best 127 yards for Notre Dame as the Irish spread the touches around between starter Kyren Williams (62 yards on 10 carries) and Tyree (65 on eight). Book is the first quarterback in Notre Dame's modern era to run for three touchdowns in one half. He added 143 yards on 12-of-19 passing before exiting with 2:21 left in the third quarter as freshman Drew Pyne took over. Jafar Armstrong added a 5-yard TD run to close out the scoring for the Irish. Meanwhile, the Irish defense limited USF to 65 yards in the first half and 231 total while breaking in three new starters. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Irish quarterback Ian Book had four passing touchdowns last season in Notre Dame's 38-7 win over Duke in Durham, but hurt the Blue Devils as much with his legs than his arm. Book rushed 12 times for 139 yards, the most for a Notre Dame QB since 1996. By year's end, he was the first Irish quarterback to pass for 2,500 yards, rush for 500 and have 30 TD passes in a season. Book is back. A graduate student, he will be in his third year as the starter. "He's very good at keeping plays alive," Duke safety Michael Carter II said Tuesday. "He's difficult to tackle but we've got to put the pressure on him and be aggressive." - Duke Chronicle

  Notre Dame will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season as part of a plan to play 10 league games and start the week of Sept. 7, alterations brought on by the pandemic. The ACC's university presidents approved a plan Wednesday for an 11-game schedule, including one nonconference game, and for pushing back the league championship game from Dec. 5 to either Dec. 12 or 19. Notre Dame will play in a football conference for the first time in the 133-year history of the proudly independent program - if the season is played. - AP College Football

  The college football season opener between Notre Dame and Navy has been moved out of Ireland because of the cornavirus pandemic. The Irish and Midshipmen were scheduled to meet in Dublin on Aug. 29, but instead will seek to play at the Naval Academy during the Labor Day weekend. The decision to move the venue came after discussions between the Irish government, medical authorities and the leadership teams at Navy and Notre Dame. "Our priority must be ensuring the health and safety of all involved," Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said. "I am expecting that we will still be able to play Notre Dame as our season opener, but there is still much to be determined by health officials and those that govern college football at large." - AP College Football

  If football is played, Notre Dame plans to limit the number of fans who can attend its home games this year, including the home opener against Arkansas on Sept. 12. Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick said Tuesday that officials will "work real hard to create some space between our fans" this fall. Swarbrick cautioned that larger university issues must be addressed before the Fighting Irish's teams can return to play, but said games would not be played in an empty stadium. "We haven't gotten to the question of how big that audience is," Swarbrick said during an interview for an alumni fundraising drive that was shown on the ND Loyal YouTube channel. "We won't be at capacity; we'll be at something less than that. We'll be very careful about maintaining social distance, how the facility works, how you enter it, how you exit it - all things to be determined, but we're working hard on them." Swarbrick said Notre Dame is "committed to having fans in the stands" this season, beginning with students. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Sage Rosenfels' first dose of Book came at the Camping World Bowl last December. He met the Book family and watched Ian handle his alma mater, Iowa State, 33-9 in Orlando, Fla. The experience helped cement their plans to work together for the first time. Some of Book's work included prep for the next level. Book practiced his footwork when snapping the ball from under center. Film sessions featured a breakdown of coverages and studying how they were attacked by NFL quarterbacks and offenses, particularly the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams, and the San Francisco 49ers.

At 6-foot, 206 pounds, Book observed shorter quarterbacks that compare with him in size, like Russell Wilson (5-11, 206) of the Seattle Seahawks and Drew Brees (6-0, 209) of the Saints. "Maybe after watching all that NFL film," Rosenfels said, "he probably got to think, 'OK, I probably need to move around the pocket better and stay in throwing position like Drew Brees does, rather than taking off and running." The main criticism surrounding Book last season became apparent to Rosenfels after they studied his games against Georgia and USC. Book sometimes struggled with anticipating open wide receivers and leaving the pocket prematurely. - South Bend Tribune

  One Notre Dame offensive standout is planning to return to school. It remains to be seen if another will join him. Quarterback Ian Book posted on his Instagram and Twitter accounts that he plans to be back for the 2020 season. Book posted a signed picture taken from Notre Dame's win over Boston College with captions, "See you in 2020" and "Go Irish." It also listed his location as Dublin, Ireland, the site of Notre Dame's season-opening game against Navy on Aug. 29 and included a hash tag "#BeatNavy." Book, who passed for 247 yards and a touchdown in a Camping World Bowl win over Iowa State on Saturday, has a redshirt season remaining after sitting out his 2016 freshman year.

So does running back Tony Jones Jr., who rushed for 135 yards against Iowa State on 11 carries, including an 84-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Notre Dame initially posted a story late Saturday on its athletic website that hinted Jones was foregoing his fifth season at Notre Dame. But athletic spokeswoman Clare Kramer, the story's author, said Monday that Jones has not made a decision. “Tony Jones Jr. does have one year of eligibility remaining,” Kramer said. Jones finished the season as Notre Dame's leading rusher with 857 yards on 144 carries (6.0 average) and six touchdowns in 12 games, missing one game with a sore hip. He went over 100 yards five times, with a career-best 176 on 25 carries against Southern California Oct. 12. - AP College Football

  Ian Book threw for 247 yards and one touchdown and Tony Jones Jr. scored on an 84-yard run, helping No. 14 Notre Dame dominate Iowa State 33-9 on Saturday in the Camping World Bowl. Book completed 20 of 28 passes without an interception, including a 27-yard TD throw to Chase Claypool as the Fighting Irish (11-2, No. 15 CFP) wrapped up another double-digit win year on a six-game winning streak. Claypool had seven receptions for 146 yards and was named game MVP, while Jones finished with 135 yards rushing. Brock Purdy was 17 of 30 for 222 yards and no interceptions for Iowa State (7-6). However, the sophomore quarterback was unable to get his team into the end zone after throwing for a Cyclones' single-season record 27 TDs during the regular season.

Notre Dame's defense was superb, forcing two first-quarter fumbles that helped the Irish build a 20-6 halftime lead. Jones scored on Notre Dame's first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, circling the left end and heading up the sideline in front of the Iowa State bench. Cornerback Tayvonn Kyle caught up to the 5-foot-11, 224-pound Jones at the Cyclones 10 yard line but was unable to fight off the running back's stiff arm and was carried into the end zone. Jafar Armstrong also scored on a 1-yard run for the Irish, who got four field goals from Jonathan Doerer. Connor Assalley kicked field goals of 41, 26 and 42 yards for Iowa State. - AP College Football

  Ian Book threw for 255 yards and four touchdowns and No. 15 Notre Dame reached double-digit wins for the third straight season by beating Stanford 45-24 on Saturday. Book threw two TD passes to Chase Claypool and also connected with Tony Jones Jr. and Tommy Tremble to help the Fighting Irish (10-2, No. 16 CFP) snap a five-game losing streak at Stanford Stadium. Notre Dame also put together three straight seasons of at least 10 wins for the second time in school history, having previously done it under Lou Holtz from 1991-93.

Davis Mills threw two TD passes for the Cardinal (4-8), who have lost four straight for the first time since 2007. Stanford also finished with its first losing record since 2008, ending a streak of 10 straight bowl bids. Notre Dame fell into a 17-7 hole before scoring two TDs in the final 3:01 of the first half to take a 21-17 lead at the break. Book threw a 6-yard TD to Tremble after Isaiah Foskey blocked a punt and then capped a three-play, 76-yard drive with a 41-yard strike to Claypool. Book then had a 26-yard scramble on fourth-and-2 to set up an 8-yard TD pass to Claypool that made it 28-17 in the third quarter, putting the Irish in control. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book threw three touchdown passes and No. 15 Notre Dame corralled Boston College star running back AJ Dillon in a 40-7 victory Saturday. The fourth straight victory by the Fighting Irish (9-2, No. 15 CFP) completed their second straight unbeaten season (7-0) at Notre Dame Stadium, where they have won 18 straight. But for the second straight week, the stadium was not filled after a streak of 273 sellouts since 1973. The announced crowd of 71,827 was 5,795 short of capacity. "We controlled the line of scrimmage," Irish coach Brian Kelly said. "We were a little uneven early on. To go undefeated at home two years in a row says everything about what these seniors mean to this program."

A total of 29 players, some with eligibility remaining, were introduced before the final home game. The group is 31-6 in three seasons since a 4-8 freshman year in 2016. One of the players taking a pre-game bow was Book, who could return next fall after not playing his freshman campaign. He now has 29 touchdown passes for the season, 14 in the four-game winning streak. "We'll see," Book said when asked if it was going to be his final home game. "You never know what can happen." - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book trusted his legs to pick up chunks of yardage for No. 15 Notre Dame. The touchdowns came from his arm. Book rushed for a career-best 139 yards and threw four touchdown passes and the Fighting Irish routed Duke 38-7 on Saturday night. Book finished 18 of 32 for 181 yards passing, Chris Finke caught touchdown passes of 18 and 6 yards, and Chase Claypool and George Takacs also had short scoring catches. C'Bo Flemister rushed 2 yards for a TD for the Fighting Irish (7-2, No. 15 CFP). In winning their second straight and fifth in six games, they rolled up 469 total yards, led 21-0 before the Blue Devils picked up their second first down and kept them at bay the rest of the way. "It's hard to win in November," Book said. "You want to win every single game in November. It's huge...We're still playing for a lot of things here."

Book became the first Notre Dame quarterback with 100 yards both rushing and passing since Brandon Wimbush did it two years ago against Wake Forest. "He's just a heck of a football player," Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. Book has accounted for seven touchdowns in his last two games, both victories over Atlantic Coast Conference schools. He threw for two TDs last week against Virginia Tech, then rushed for the winning score with 29 seconds left to beat the Hokies. The Blue Devils kept him from crossing the goal line in this one, prompting Book to quip that "I need to get faster. "I need to get in the end zone," he said. "I'm kind of upset about it. But fast DBs, they caught me...I was able to get the first downs...but I want to get in the end zone." - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Kelly says QB Ian Book has maintained a high level of confidence despite an up-and-down season. Book shrugged off two interceptions last week and led an 18-play, 87-yard drive that he capped with a 7-yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left to beat the Hokies. "If you lose your confidence here as a quarterback you can't play quarterback at Notre Dame," Kelly said. "There is just so much noise...Although it's difficult for everybody when you don't play particularly well, when you don't play particularly well, we felt like he had what it took to stand up to that. You know, he did, and he's come out on the other end and should be better for it." - AP College Football

  Ian Book ran 7 yards for a touchdown with 29 seconds left in the fourth quarter to cap an 18-play, 87-yard drive and No. 16 Notre Dame pulled out a 21-20 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday. The Fighting Irish (6-2) had committed three turnovers deep in Virginia Tech territory, including a fumble at the goal line that Divine Deablo returned for a 98-yard touchdown to tie the game at 14 with 9 seconds left in the first half. The Hokies (5-3) added a couple of field goals in the second half and the Irish missed one, leaving Notre Dame trailing by six with 3:19 remaining and the ball at its 13.

Book led a methodical drive, converting two fourth downs, including a fourth-and-10 from the Tech 33 for 26 yards to Chase Claypool that gave the Irish first-and-goal from the 7. After two incomplete passes, Notre Dame caught Virginia Tech in a blitz. Book ran away from it and darted into the end zone. Jonathan Doerer booted through the PAT for the lead, Kyle Hamilton picked off a long pass by Quincy Patterson around midfield to end the Hokies' final possession and the Irish averted a two-game losing streak. Book passed for 341 yards and two touchdown. Patterson got the start for Virginia Tech at quarterback in place of Hendon Hooker, who had started the three previous victories but suffered a knee injury in Virginia Tech's 43-41 six-overtime victory over North Carolina two Saturdays ago. Patterson ran for 77 yards on 19 carries and completed 9 of 28 passes for 139 yards and an 8-yard touchdown to Damon Hazelton in the second quarter. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book threw five touchdown passes and had only four incomplete passes in a little more than two quarters of work as No. 9 Notre Dame rolled over Bowling Green 52-0 on Saturday. The Fighting Irish (4-1) had their way with the Falcons, a first-time opponent from the Mid-American Conference whose campus is just 164 miles away. The winning margin matched Notre Dame's winning difference in a 66-14 victory over New Mexico earlier this season and was Notre Dame's first shutout since 2014. The Irish had 573 total yards, with senior Tony Jones Jr. rushing over 100 for the third time this season. Jones had 102 yards on seven carries. Notre Dame limited the Falcons (1-4) to 228 yards.

Book, who matched his previous high of five touchdown passes against New Mexico last month, completed 16 of 20 for 261 yards before giving way to backup Phil Jurkovec at the 4:11 mark of the third quarter. Jurkovec, a 6-foot-5 sophomore, added a TD pass in the third quarter, a 7-yarder to Avery Davis. After going three-and-out on their first possession, the Irish drove 80 yards in six plays and 1:58, culminating with Book's 17-yard scoring pass to Tommy Tremble. Scoring passes to Cole Kmet (21 yards) and Chase Claypool (34 yards) made it 21-0 after the first quarter. Book then hit Claypool (8 yards) and Javon McKinley (25 yards) with scoring passes in the second quarter for a 35-0 halftime lead. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Ian Book threw a career-high five touchdown passes and Notre Dame's defense came up with three first-half interceptions as the seventh-ranked Fighting Irish rolled past New Mexico 66-14 on Saturday in the final tuneup for a showdown at No. 3 Georgia. The senior Book rebounded from a lackluster opening performance in a 35-17 victory at Louisville to complete 15 of 24 passes for 360 yards. Book finished with another 46 yards rushing yards and a 1-yard TD. He sat the final 1½ quarters. The Fighting Irish (2-0) had their way with the Lobos (1-1), who were without head coach Bob Davie. Saga Tuitele acted as head coach for Davie, the former Irish head coach from 1997-2001 who was hospitalized following New Mexico's opening victory Aug. 31 against Sam Houston State and did not make the trip.

Notre Dame finished with 591 total yards to 363 by New Mexico, which got touchdown runs by Bryson Carroll (47 yards) and Bobby Cole (37). The Lobos outrushed the Irish 212-157. Three of Book's 'long' scoring passes were short throws that receivers turned into big plays. Avery Davis went 59 yards, Javon McKinley went 65 and Chris Finke had a 54-yarder. McKinley added another TD on a 20-yard scoring reception in the third quarter after Chase Claypool had a 37-yard TD reception in Notre Dame's 31-point second quarter. Freshman safety Kyle Hamilton opened the scoring with a 34-yard interception return for a touchdown. Notre Dame later got interceptions from Jalen Elliott and Shaun Crawford in the second quarter that the offense converted into touchdowns while taking a 38-7 halftime lead. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Book was one of about two dozen college quarterbacks to serve as a counselor for the five-day Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, La., in late June. "It was an awesome experience," Book said. Irish coach Brian Kelly noticed a change in Book's demeanor following those five days in Louisiana. Noticed by the way he carried himself around the Gug. Like he REALLY belongs. "You come back, and there's kind of a self-realization that, 'I'm pretty good; I can hang with anybody in the country, and I've got to do these things as well,'" Kelly said. "When you're exposed to elite players, that's always a positive thing. It was a positive experience for him."

He completed 68.2 percent of his passes and threw for 2,628 yards with 19 touchdowns last season. Look for him to make a run to surpass all those numbers this season. He believes he can. "You've got to be confident; you've got to know that you're the best one on the field when you're out there and you can lead this team," Book said. "You've got to consistently tell yourself that." Physically, Book looks different than last season, when he played at 203 pounds. He opened camp listed at 212. The added muscle gives him a confidence to weather the rush for a second or two longer, to get out of the pocket and take on would-be tacklers. To push past the bumps and bruises that are bound to surface. He feels good; he looks good. "I took pride in wanting to gain some weight," he said. "I feel strong." - South Bend Tribune
