Bleacher Report: Ian Book Impressive as Gold Beats Blue in 2019 Notre Dame Spring Game
The 90th annual Blue-Gold game on Saturday offered Ian Book and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish a chance to put a disappointing Cotton Bowl showing behind them and move on to the 2019 season.
Notre Dame ran the table in the regular season last year en route to capturing its first College Football Playoff berth. However, a 30-3 thrashing in the semifinals at the hands of eventual champion Clemson put an end to a promising season for Brian Kelly and Co.
There are still nearly five months until the regular season kicks off, but the spring game gave Fighting Irish players a chance to show the coaching staff and fans what they could do.
