Brandon Wimbush and Josh Adams each ran for more than 200 yards as Notre Dame overcame a sluggish start to grind up outmanned Boston College by 49-20 on Saturday. Wimbush scored four touchdowns and ripped off several dazzling runs in leading the Fighting Irish to a 515-yard rushing day. Adams broke two 65-yarders in the first half to set up scores that staked Notre Dame to a surprisingly slim 14-10 lead over the pesky Eagles at intermission. The rout began in the third quarter, however, and never abated as the Irish defense forced turnovers and the offensive line opened massive holes. The victory lifts Notre Dame to 2-1 on the season while Boston College fell to 1-2.
