Ian Book throws a dart to give the Irish its first TD ☘️
Recruiting. It matters.
Michael Mayer out jumps about three Pitt defenders for Ian Book’s heave. Notre Dame leads 38-3.
With the 73-yard touchdown pass to Ben Skowronek, Ian Book moves into second place in Irish QB history for career touchdown passes (62).
Book passes current John and Bobbie Arlotta Family Offensive Coordinator Tommy Rees (61).
Ian Book almost throws a pick on second down in the end zone. Pitt commits pass interference in the end zone on third-and-long.
And then Kyren Williams scores from first-and-goal at the two.
Get a break. Take advantage of a mistake. Take a commanding lead.
Notre Dame up 21-3.
Brendon Clark takes over to Ian Book.
Final stat line on the Irish starting quarterback: 16-of-30 for a season-high 312 yards, 3 TDs and no turnovers.
This is very weird but also very true when you think about it: Ian Book is Brandon Wimbush.

Ian Book to Michael Mayer for the score!
Ian Book can’t throw the ball better than a high school Sophomore, but he’s thrown for 300 yards against #Pitt in 3 quarters. Narduzzi’s great D has effectively kept the run to about 90 yds. Oh and Pitt is behind 45-3. This is beyond pathetic.

I think Coach Kelly just told Ian Book -- that's a wrap...
Notre Dame goes up 38-3 over Pitt after a 14 yard TD pass from Ian Book to Michael Mayer. This short 49 yard drive came after the Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah INT. #NDFB
Might as well send out some takeaways since the backups are in (stats subject to change)
Play calling was very encouraging, 59% passing and 50%(!) play action with Ian Book
Book's completion % doesn't look great but still averaged 10.4 yards/attempt and was great scrambling
if Ian Book was good Notre Dame would be ridiculous
My #NotreDame blood pressure is lower after three
(except Ian Book needs more practice for his throwing game)
Ian Book est débloqué, ça y est ! Le QB des Irish lance un TD pour son TE true freshman Michael Mayer. À noter l’interception quelques secondes plus tot d’Owusu-Koramoah.
