The Notre Dame Fighting Irish did their job against the Maryland Terrapins, leaving no doubt in a 45-21 victory.
Notre Dame wasn't perfect in this game, but Irish fans should be very satisfied with a 24-point win over Maryland.
From the opening kickoff, it was clear the Terrapins were outmanned. Notre Dame realized this and never took its foot off the throttle, jumping out to an early lead and never allowing Maryland a chance to get back into contention.
For a team that's had a problem with playing down to lesser competition in recent years, this was a refreshing victory.
