The signal caller of Notre Dame completed the game with a touchdown and 279 passing yards. He also finished 23 of the 33 attempts provided. With 46 yards against the defense of North Carolina, he also flaunted his wheels.
Book played another game impressively. Lately, he has been playing stunningly in terms of wins against Boston and Clemson College. Brown was told to talk about Book in a press conference after the game. It was at this time when the coach of North Carolina spoke about him as the contender for the Heisman Trophy 2020.
Brown said that Ian Book performed well that day. He said that tackling him was very difficult, yet they couldn’t do it. They had spread people around Book and with that number of people, they could have had 6 sacks. He continued to say that on third down, Book played unbelievably. Brown said that the record of Book is set at 29-3. He is already a good player but his performance in the recent game was unbelievable.
Coming from Brown who was the coach for Colt McCoy and Vince Yong, such praise was commendable.
This year, if Notre Dame wants to win against teams such as Clemson and reach the level of the football playoff, it was necessary for Book to amp up his fire. So far, he has managed to achieve that. In Saturday’s game, for 1817 yards, Book completed 62% of the passes done to him. He managed to rush the game ball for as long as 364 yards while giving 6 touchdowns.
