Five Answers: Boston College

No luck was needed this weekend as the Irish made a trip to Brian Kelly's hometown looking for their tenth victory of the season. We posed five questions prior to the game and now have the answers.

ANSWER ONE

Can the Notre Dame defense contain wide receiver Alex Amidon?

Yes! Amidon enjoyed a solid game with six catches for 84 yards. However, 22 of those yards came on one catch as the Irish bottled up the 5-foot-11, 186-pound receiver and kept him out of the end zone.

ANSWER TWO

Will the businesslike road version of the Irish continue against Boston College?

Yes! While it may not have been like some of the other performances we've seen this season the Irish still took care of business on their way to a tenth victory.

ANSWER THREE

Can Everett Golson put together a complete game?

Yes! Golson was solid throwing the ball with 200 yards and three touchdowns on 16-of-24 passing on the night. Add in another 39 yards rushing and a touchdown and you have to say he played one of the best games of his career.

ANSWER FOUR

Can the Irish defense get back to their stingy ways after last Saturday's lapse?

Yes! Bob Diaco's bend don't break defense was on full display as the Irish gave up 300 yards of total offense while only giving up six points.

ANSWER FIVE

Can the Irish move to 10-0 for the first time since 1993?

Yes! The Irish continue moving forward in their hunt for a spot in this year's national championship game. With two games to go anything is still possible for this surprising team still in the hunt.
