Report: Notre Dame starting QB Ian Book out against FSU


Notre Dame will be without starting quarterback Ian Book due to midsection injuries when the No. 3 Irish take on Florida State, according to a report from Irish Sports Daily.

Book replaced Brandon Wimbush as the starter four games into the season and has been one of the best quarterbacks in the country over the last six games.

He’s completing 74.5 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions this season while averaging 8.9 yards per passing attempt.

He also has 218 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

Wimbush will likely be the replacement in the starting lineup for Book.

In his three games as a starter, Wimbush completed 55.3 percent of his passes with one touchdown and four interceptions. He averaged 7.8 yards per passing attempt.

Wimbush added 136 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground during his time as a starter.

The Seminoles are 17.5-point underdogs to win the game, but their odds improve significantly with Book out.

FSU needs two wins over its final three games of the season to get back to a bowl game for the 37th straight season.
