  11/27/20 - Ian BookrSr/2021, Notre Dame, 6-0, 206 (DS#14 QB) + More +

  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

  11/27/20 - Tommy TremblerSo/2023, Notre Dame, 6-3, 248 (DS#5 TE) + More +

  Even when he was significantly undersized relative to his position, Notre Dame tight end Tommy Tremble aspired to be an overpowering football player. "My dad taught me that," Tommy said about Greg Tremble, who starred as a safety for the University of Georgia in the late '90s. "He said, 'Never be scared of contact. The more scared you are, the more hurt you are going to be." Playing running back and defense growing up inspired Tremble to embrace contact. Tremble impressed as a defensive player so much that Michigan, Purdue and Mississippi State were among Power Five programs to offer him a scholarship as a linebacker during his recruitment.

After he chose to play offense, Tremble needed time to develop physically before that mentality translated in college. Recruiting analysts perceived Tremble as a one-dimensional receiving threat when he joined the Irish in 2018. Their assessments proved to be correct through Tremble's first two seasons. To effectively develop into a complete tight end, Tremble needed to add a substantial amount of weight. He said he arrived at Notre Dame around 205-210 pounds. He did not play as a true freshman. In Tremble's second season last year, the Irish primarily used him in passing situations. "I couldn't really get that chance to be that dominant blocker," Tremble said. "But I always had that physical mindset. I never really lost that." - South Bend Tribune

  11/26/20 - Tommy KraemerrSr/2021, Notre Dame, 6-5, 317 (DS#5 OG) + More +

  An offensive line being trumpeted as the nation's best by many observers will have the quality of its depth tested this week. First reported by Irish Illustrated on Sunday morning, Notre Dame starting right guard Tommy Kraemer will join injured center Jarrett Patterson on the sideline after Kraemer reportedly underwent an emergency appendectomy on Friday night. Kraemer is a grad senior and fourth-year starter, moving inside to guard in 2018 after playing right tackle his sophomore season on the 2017 Joe Moore Award-winning Irish offensive line. The 6-foot-6, 317-pounder missed the final six games of the 2019 season with a knee injury suffered in a 45-14 loss at Michigan. Versatile senior Josh Lugg is the leading candidate to replace Kraemer. - Indianapolis Star/News

  11/21/20 - Jarrett PattersonrSo/2023, Notre Dame, 6-5, 305 (DS#1 C) + More +

  Notre Dame starting center Jarrett Patterson is expected to miss the remainder of the season, according to multiple reports Monday. Irish Illustrated first reported Patterson will need surgery on a left foot injury that occurred in Saturday's 45-31 win at Boston College. Notre Dame officials had not confirmed the news by Monday evening. The loss of Patterson, a junior, is a blow to the middle of the Irish offensive line. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Patterson started the previous 21 games at center for what has become one of the best offensive lines in the country. No. 2 Notre Dame (8-0, 7-0 ACC) entered this week, which the Irish have off, ranked No. 17 in the FBS in rushing offense with 234 yards per game. Only 19 FBS teams that have played at least five games have allowed fewer sacks per game than Notre Dame's 1.75. - South Bend Tribune

  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

  Alabama is No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll for the first time this year, extending its record of consecutive seasons with at least one week on top of the rankings to 13. Notre Dame moved up two spots to No. 2 on Sunday after upsetting Clemson in a dramatic double-overtime game Saturday night. Ohio State remained No. 3. Clemson gave up the top spot for the first time this season and landed at No. 4. The Crimson Tide, who had an open date, received 59 of 62 first-place votes. Notre Dame, which has its best ranking since it was No. 1 at the end of the 2012 regular season, received two first-place votes. Ohio State got one. Texas A&M moved up two spots to No. 5, the Aggies’ best ranking since they finished fifth to end the 2012 season. Florida jumped two spots to No. 6 after beating Georgia to snap a three-game losing streak against its SEC East rival. The Bulldogs fell eight spots to a season-low 13th. - AP College Football

  11/07/20 - Kyren WilliamsrFr/2024, Notre Dame, 5-09, 194 (DS#2 RB) + More +

  Kyren Williams had a 3-yard touchdown run in the second overtime and No. 4 Notre Dame shut down top-ranked Clemson with a couple of sacks to seal a 47-40 victory Saturday night, the Fighting Irish's first victory over a No. 1 in 27 years. Clemson had won 36 straight games and had not lost to an Atlantic Coast Conference team since 2017. The Fighting Irish (7-0, 6-0), playing in the ACC only because of the pandemic, snapped both streaks and sparked fans to storm the field in a celebration that most definitely did not meet the CDC's social-distancing guidelines.

After Williams gave Norte Dame the lead on the first possession of the second OT, the Irish pushed Clemson back with back-to-back sacks on DJ Uaigalelei by Adetokumbo Ogundeji and Daelin Hayes on the Tigers first two plays. The big freshman quarterback completed to passes after the second-and-39, but the final one was way short of the line to gain and a couple of laterals didn't help. The Fighting Irish have won 13 straight games, snapped an 11-game losing streak against top-five teams and beat a No. 1 for the first time since taking down Florida State in 1993 at Notre Dame Stadium. - AP College Football

  11/05/20 - Jafar ArmstrongrJr/2022, Notre Dame, 6-0, 220 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  One small change Notre Dame has made in its offense is returning senior Jafar Armstrong to the wide receiver position. Armstrong has been playing running back since a breakout season in 2018, but his usage at the position has been almost exclusively limited to lopsided victories this year. Through six games, Armstrong registered 17 carries for eight yards and one touchdown. Armstrong was recruited by the Irish as a receiver out of Shawnee Mission (Kan.) Bishop Miege. On this week's depth chart, the 6-1, 220-pound Armstrong was listed as the No. 2 boundary receiver behind Javon McKnley. The emergence of Kyren Williams, Chris Tyree and C'Bo Flemister at running back has given the Irish the confidence to move Armstrong elsewhere. "We think that Jafar can be much more of an impact player for us at the wide receiver position," Kelly said. "He will continue to work there. Eventually when he gets a little bit more time there, he's going to impact us and help us win football games." - South Bend Tribune

  11/05/20 - Daelin HayesrSr/2021, Notre Dame, 6-3, 266 (DS#15 DE) + More +

  Fifth-year defensive end Daelin Hayes, a captain, led the defensive effort with arguably the best game of his Irish career. He totaled five tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles on his sacks. They were his first sacks of the season and the first since the season opener at Louisville last season. Hayes, who missed the final nine games last year with a shoulder injury, said his play has outpaced his statistical output so far this season. But making a splash in the box score helps. Only one of his strips sacks was recovered by the Irish. "Today just happened to be a day where those plays came to me," Hayes said. "I was excited and glad. The first one is the sweetest, but it's also the hardest one to get out the way. Glad I could put that behind me and just keep moving forward." - Indianapolis Star/News
