No. 6 Irish beat Wake Forest, Josh Adams has 98-yard touchdown

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Josh Adams scored on a 98-yard run, the longest scoring play in Notre Dame history, and defensive end Andrew Trumbetti scored on a 28-yard interception as the sixth-ranked Fighting Irish beat Wake Forest 28-7 Saturday despite struggling offensively.

Adams started and ran for 141 yards with Notre Dame’s leading rusher C.J. Prosise sidelined while recovering from a concussion. Adams, who was fourth on the Irish depth chart in the preseason, posted his second straight 100-yard game and third of the season.

DeShone Kizer added touchdown runs of 12 and five yards for the Irish (9-1, No. 4 CFP).

John Wolford scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter for Wake Forest (3-7), but the Demon Deacons squandered three other red-zone opportunities.

The Irish were held to less than 400 yards of total offense for the first time this season as Wake Forest outgained Notre Dame 340 yards to 282.
