Ian Book, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s backup quarterback, is making the most of his second-half minutes.
Book is 3-for-5 for 51 yards, with the highlight being an absolute cannon drop to former walk-on Chris Finke for 48 yards. Finke beat his man, who got late safety help and extended his arms perfectly to reel in the catch.

The seven-play, 87 yard drive was capped off by a 26-yard scamper by fourth string running back Deon McIntosh who kept his legs moving. The Irish are beating the Miami-Ohio Redhawks, 52-17, with four minutes remaining in the game.
