Notre Dame VS Navy: Chase Claypool helped Irish get to 38-3 halftime lead with 3 TD

Canadian AWESOME

NCAA Football: Navy at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are having their way with the Navy Midshipmen right now, and after one half of football, they hold a 38-3 lead.

The Notre Dame defense has forced two turnovers to help this blowout-in-progress. Khalid Kareem forced two fumbles and Asmar Bilal and Jamir Jones have one fumble recovery each. A third fumble was just a drop from Navy QB Malcom Perry, and Drew White fell on it.

It’s been Chase Claypool, however, that has done the most dame to the Middies. Claypool has 6 receptions for 97 yards and three touchdowns. The Canadian superstar is absolutely too much athlete for Navy to handle and Notre Dame has exploited that brilliantly.

Braden Lenzy also caught a 70 yard bomb for touchdown, and Tony Jones Jr. has a rushing touchdown that took a long review — but he got it.

Ian Book is 11-14 for 209 yards and 4 TD’s.

Navy kicked a FG as the clock ran out on the 1st half.
