The Irish played a perfect half of offensive football -- six drives, six touchdowns 42 points... The second half, not so perfect -- but, we did see a "Brian Kelly type QB" for the first time running his offense and Mr. Hendrix ran for 111 yards! Here's a few links from UND.COM's post game coverage of Notre Dame's 59 - 33 win over Air Force:
