Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on what he sees from Michigan State so far: "Extremely disciplined, hard-nosed, play to the echo of the whistle. Just resembles a lot more of the teams that I had seen '10, '11, '12, '13. Those were supremely talented teams the last few years. This team reminds me of some of [Mark Dantonio's] earlier teams."

Notre Dame has made it clear in both of its wins that it wants to overwhelm opponents with the rushing attack. The Irish have rushed for 937 yards and 12 touchdowns against Temple and Boston College.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has to feel good about his run game now. A week after gaining 55 total rush yards against Georgia, the Irish rolled up over 500 on what was supposed to be a solid BC run defense. Josh Adams and Brandon Wimbush each went over 200 yards.

Boston College had its chances against Notre Dame, but the turning point came in the third quarter. After failing on fourth-and-1 from the Irish 30 down by 1, Notre Dame scored on three straight possessions to put the game out of reach.
