    No. 3 Notre Dame rolls to 12-0 season, beats rival USC 24-17

    Notre Dame's offensive skill players gathered on the sideline and looked up at an unfamiliar sight on the scoreboard. The Fighting Irish hadn't faced a double-digit deficit at any point in their perfect season before Southern California jumped to a 10-0 lead Saturday night.

    With their national championship dreams suddenly in a wee bit of trouble, running back Dexter Williams spoke up.

    "Somebody has got to make a play!" Williams shouted.

    Ian Book and Chris Finke did just that on Notre Dame's next drive, and Williams did it himself right after halftime.

    By the time the Irish were done making plays at the Coliseum, they were well on the way to the College Football Playoff with the Jeweled Shillelagh firmly in hand.

    Book passed for 352 yards, Williams went 52 yards on a go-ahead touchdown run and No. 3 Notre Dame completed an unbeaten regular season and likely secured a playoff spot with a 24-17 over longtime rival USC.

    Book throws 5 TDs as No. 9 Notre Dame routs Bowling Green

    With Southern California on the horizon for No. 9 Notre Dame, Brian Kelly wanted his team to show explosiveness against Bowling Green on Saturday.

    The Fighting Irish did, and plenty of it.

    Ian Book threw a career-high five touchdown passes and had only four incompletions in a little more than two quarters of work and the defense earned its first shutout since 2014 in a 52-0 victory over the Falcons.

    So much for the notion that No. 14 Notre Dame didn't have anything to play for in the Camping World Bowl.

    A year removed from an appearance in the CFP national semifinals, the Fighting Irish closed out another double-digit win season with arguably their best all-around performance in a 33-9 victory over Iowa State on Saturday.
