Notre Dame's switch from Brandon Wimbush to Ian Book has paid off greater than most of us could've ever imagined. On Saturday night against Northwestern, Book made Brian Kelly look smart yet again, with three total scores including this late read-option touchdown to put the game away.

Great read by Book, who chose to put the game on his shoulders rather than feed the ball into the awaiting arms of his running back.
Notre Dame likely has to win out to secure their spot in the College Football Playoff. With remaining games against Florida State, Syracuse, and USC, that's looking like a realistic possibility.
