These three stood out in Notre Dame's 23-13 win over BYU.
Cam McDaniel, RB: McDaniel turned in a career-best 117 yards on the day, on 24 carries. He was reliable again in a game that called for the Irish to pound the rock up the middle. With snow falling off and on all day, and with the game-time temperature of 26 degrees the coldest at a Notre Dame Stadium kickoff in 22 years, he led an attack that tallied 235 yards and carried Notre Dame to a win.
DaVaris Daniels, WR: Daniels caught six balls for 107 yards and a touchdown, crossing the century mark for the second time this season. He proved difficult to defend 1-on-1 all day, drawing pass interference flags and teaming with TJ Jones to give Tommy Rees a strong tandem in tough passing conditions.
Jarron Jones, NG: Where did this come from? Chris Watt joked about looking up to the scoreboard, seeing Jones' name with seven tackles, and saying to himself, Jarron Jones? But the redshirt freshman stepped up big-time (he had seven tackles for the season coming in) and blocked a field goal attempt with just more than four minutes remaining that would have cut the Notre Dame lead to seven. He did all of this despite spraining his ankle two weeks ago, and while filling in for Kona Schwenke, who left early after trying to play through a high-ankle sprain. (And was filling in for Louis Nix III to start with.)
