ACC: Notre Dame Hosts FSU; Syracuse Rolls Over Louisville

Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book will not play in today’s game against Florida State because of a rib injury, multiple media outlets.

According to IrishSportsDaily.com, Book suffered multiple injuries to his midsection in Saturday’s game at Northwestern, and those injuries will prevent him from playing on Saturday.

He finished the game and has played a major role in Notre Dame’s 9-0 record that has elevated the Irish to the No. 3 spot in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings.

Presumably Brandon Wimbush, who was Notre Dame’s starting quarterback when the season began, will start against the Seminoles, who are 4-5 overall and 2-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Book took over as the starting quarterback against Wake Forest on Sept. 22. He replaced Wimbush, who started the first three games. ESPN.com reported that Book is expected to be available for Notre Dame’s game against No. 13 Syracuse on Nov. 17.


Miami has lost three games in a row, and the Hurricanes are changing quarterbacks again.

Miami coach Mark Richt said that redshirt freshman N’Kosi Perry will be the Hurricanes’ starting quarterback on Saturday against Georgia Tech.

It will be the fourth career start for Perry and his first since the Virginia game Oct. 13. He also started the two games before the loss to the Cavaliers.

Perry replaces fifth-year senior Malik Rosier, who started the first four games of the season and the two most recent games before being benched for the second time this season.


No. 13 Syracuse (8-2, 5-2 ACC) used a 30-point, second-quarter explosion to defeat Louisville (2-8, 0-7 ACC) by the score of 54-23 in its final home game on Friday in the Carrier Dome.

The Orange raised their record to 6-0 in the Dome this season, the fourth unbeaten home campaign in the building’s history, and they did it in front of a season-high crowd of 42,797.

Senior quarterback Eric Dungey completed 14-of-27 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown. He also ran 16 times for 62 yards and two scores.

Overall, Syracuse ran for 326 yards and five touchdowns in the victory, snapping the Cardinals’ four-game winning streak in the series.
