Notre Dame rushed for 235 yards against BYU on Saturday. Junior running back Cam McDaniel carried 24 times for 117 yards, while freshman running back Tarean Folston gained 78 yards on 13 attempts.
The Irish also rushed for at least 200 yards against Oklahoma and Navy, and Notre Dame is now 29-2 in its last 31 games when hitting the 200-yard mark on the ground.
Jones and Rees climbing the ranks
Senior quarterback Tommy Rees connected with senior receiver TJ Jones on a 30-yard completion in the first quarter. Rees vaulted over 7,000 career passing yards, becoming the fourth Notre Dame quarterback to reach the milestone.
Jones extended his school record of consecutive games with a reception to 38, and his five catches moved the senior into a tie for third place all-time in program history with Rhema McKnight at 170 receptions.
Martin is an ironman
Graduate student left tackle Zack Martin made his 50th consecutive start, tying the school record set by former offensive lineman Sam Young.
