WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Ian Book started at quarterback for No. 8 Notre Dame in its game against Wake Forest on Saturday.
The redshirt sophomore replaced Brandon Wimbush in the starting lineup, two days after coach Brian Kelly sidestepped questions about making a change at the position.
The Fighting Irish (3-0) won their first three games by a total of 20 points and didn't score more than 24 points in any of those games.
Book led Notre Dame to a 33-10 rout of North Carolina last year when Wimbush was injured, and led a second-half rally in a Citrus Bowl victory over LSU. His only previous action this season came last week against Vanderbilt, completing all three passes for 13 yards and a touchdown.
