A shutout win for the Irish over Boston College in a white out
SOUTH BEND, Ind – Notre Dame earns their largest victory of the season winning 44-0 over Boston College.
It was senior night and the final home game of the regular season for Notre Dame.
Emotions were running high, but when it was time for action, the Irish controlled the game from start to finish against Boston College, leading 37 – 0 at half and scoring all seven possessions.
“When I addressed them at half time, I said listen I’m tired of getting up there postgame and they’re saying you guys play to your competition. You guys came out to a thirty-point lead, whatever. I said, you help me answer these questions after the game,” said Head Coach Marcus Freeman.
They answered on both sides of the ball.
Defensively the Irish were a force with three interceptions by freshman Ben Morrison and sack from Isaiah Foskey, making him the all-time leader in sacks in Notre Dame Football history.
Foskey’s hit on the Eagles quarterback was hard, but mother nature hit Notre Dame Stadium even harder to start the second half, covering the field with snow.
“It was cold. It was cold but it was doable,” said Running Back Logan Diggs.
Even with the cold and low visibility, the offense managed to march down the field, leading to a six-yard touchdown by running back Audric Estime.
“Being able to go there as an offensive line and play as a unit and run the ball like we did, it’s just so much fun,” said Offensive Lineman Joe Alt.
“We had to run the ball I don’t care what they were playing defensively. I don’t care if they brought everyone they had. The ability to rush for 281, you know that’s pretty good, and they stepped up to the challenge,” Freeman added.
Next up for the Irish, is their final game of the regular season as they travel to Los Angeles to take on USC on November 26th.
