Marine Corps - USMC Community - NOTRE DAME BESTS THE MIDSHIPMEN
  • MIDSHIPMEN BESTED BY THE IRISH



    NOTRE DAME, Ind. — The Notre Dame passing game was all but unstoppable Saturday inside Notre Dame Stadium as the No. 16 Irish cruised to a 52-20 victory over No. 23 Navy.

    A career day from wide receiver Chase Claypool provided the highlight on a day full of them, accounting for seven catches, 117 yards and a career-high four touchdowns. The senior set a career-long with his 47-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and his three first-half touchdown receptions were the most by an Irish player since at least 1950. With four scoring catches, Claypool tied the Notre Dame record set by Maurice Stovall against BYU in 2005.

    Quarterback Ian Book had a similar career performance, finishing 14-of-20 for 284 yards and five touchdowns, including a career-long 70-yard toss to Braden Lenzy in the second quarter. With his fourth touchdown pass, Book became the first quarterback in program history to record four games with four passing touchdowns in a season. With his fifth, he became the first Irish quarterback with three games of five passing touchdowns in a year.

    The Irish outgained the Midshipmen 410-360 despite running 24 fewer plays (77 to 53). The Irish defense had plenty to do with it, recovering four Navy fumbles, all of which turned into Notre Dame points. Drew White led the team with 10 tackles, while Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah had 1.5 sacks and Khalid Kareem forced a career-high two fumbles.
