WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) A quarterback change helped make No. 8 Notre Dame finally feel good about its offense again. Now the question is whether the Fighting Irish will stick with him this week against No. 7 Stanford.
The Fighting Irish's offense found a groove arguably for the first time all year, rolling up season highs in points and total yardage in a 56-27 rout of Wake Forest following a switch to quarterback Ian Book .
Book led four consecutive touchdown drives - twice - against the Demon Deacons while accounting for five TDs (three rushing, two passing) as part of the team's 566 total yards. That gave the Irish (4-0) further reason to believe in their offense this week against the Cardinal.
