Here is the AP Round of the Game:
SAN DIEGO (AP) – The Ian Book threw itself 330 yards and two touchdowns, Dexter Williams ran for 1
42 yards and three points and No. 3 Notre Dame overwhelmed Navy 44-22 on Saturday night to remain undefeated and in the playoffs.
JaFar Armstrong added a rushing touchdown for Fighting Irish. They are 8-0 for the first time since 2012 when they remained unanswered until directed by Alabama in the BCS national title game.
Notre Dame had 584 meters of total crime because it expanded its dominance in the oldest continuous crossing to 78-13-1.
For the first time played in San Diego the first time Notre Dame used his superior size and talent to take a lead of 27-0 just before half time. While the defense retained Navy’s triple options in control, the book was remarkably effective as he held the midshipman off-balance with lots of play action. He completed 27 of 33 passes, to 10 recipients. He threw a whistle.
Book, from El Dorado Hills near Sacramento, improved to 5-0 after Brandon Wimbush replaced the starter. Book threw touchdown pass 4 and 22 yards to top booth Miles Boykin in the second half.
Navy (2-6), who lost his fifth straight, finally broke through when Zach Abey had two 1-yard touchdown runs in the third quarter. The book intercepted early in the fourth quarter and set up a 33-yard touchdown run by Mike Martin.
The Fighting Irish came to an unfortunate start when Boykin fumbled at the end of a 12-yard win at first game from the gruff. Navy failed to capitalize, and Notre Dame scored four of his next five possessions. Armstrong had a 1-yard scoring run, and Williams then had touchdown runs at 12, 9 and 2 yards. Williams was 23 times.
Navy came third in the nation with 309.4 meters rush per game and had 292 against Notre Dame. Malcolm Perry had 133 meters on 12 berries.
The game, which attracted an audience of 63,626 to SDCCU Stadium, was promoted by the San Diego Bowl Game Association.
Notre Dame: After gathering to beat Pitt and save his season, the fighting Irishman had a week to prepare for the triple trip options. It showed that the Midshipmen could not get anything until the second half, when they were long after.
Navy: Midshipmen dropped to 3-5 in San Diego. This was the first time they played an opponent of Notre Dame’s caliber here. The midshipmen were 1-0 in the Holiday Bowl, 2-2 in the now-defined Poinsettia Bowl and 0-2 against the San Diego State.

Week 9 Picks and Predictions
WHAT IS BACK?
Two weeks after a close conversation against Pittsburgh, Notre Dame appears to be undefeated and instead of a playoff dock, as it renews the longest crossing rock in college football. Although the Midshipman will play in a naval city, the first visit to San Diego by Fighting Irish will have a lot to do with an expected sales volume of 66,000.
Navy & # 39 ; s triple option, third in the country with 309.4 meters rushing per game, against a Notre Dame defense rested after an open week. Due to the unique character of Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo’s crime, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly had three different players mimic Navy’s quarterback during training.
Notre Dame: QB Ian Book, who is from El Dorado Hills, California, near Sacramento, seems to improve to 5-0 after replacing Brandon Wimbush. The book exceeded two interceptions against Pitt and was 13 by 14 for 158 meters and two touchdowns in the second half, including the 35-yard game-winning to Miles Boykin at 5:43 left.
Navy: RB Malcolm Perry leads the Midshipmen with 799 meters and seven touchdowns of 127 berries.
