LANDOVER, Md. -- Will Andrew Hendrix get in for the first time in three games? Will Notre Dame finish with two different 100-yard rushers?

These are the relevant questions as we enter the fourth quarter with Notre Dame holding a 38-7 lead over Maryland.

Cierre Wood and Lo Wood were the scorers in the third period -- the former notching a three-yard touchdown run, the latter taking an interception 57 yards the other way for a touchdown.

Wood has 79 yards on 14 carries. Jonas Gray has his first career 100-yard game, with 125 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. The most telling play may have been a third-and-17 from the Irish 20, when Gray rushed it 19 yards up the middle for a first down on a drive that ended with Cierre Wood's score. Maryland simply has no answer for the run.

Notre Dame has now outscored its opponents in the third quarter this season by a 77-13 margin, and it has not allowed a third-quarter offensives score in nine of 10 games.
