No. 5 Notre Dame beats Stanford 45-14, awaits playoff fate

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Notre Dame did its job and now all the Fighting Irish can do is wait.

Jack Coan threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and No. 5 Notre Dame finished off the regular season with a 45-14 victory over Stanford on Saturday to keep its playoff hopes alive.

"We controlled what we needed to control and that was to play really good football on offense, defense and special teams over the past six, seven weeks," coach Brian Kelly said. "We've done that. So we made our case. We'll now sit back and see what other people think. But we got one of the best four teams without question in my mind. We're ready to prove it."
