Greg Cote: Master motivators Richt and Diaz are why Canes are 9-0

  Greg Cote: Master motivators Richt and Diaz are why Canes are 9-0 Too much will be made of where the Miami Hurricanes land Tuesday in the new College Football Playoff rankings. Only will it be a big deal if UM somehow is unfathomably omitted from the top four, which would require an immediate sanity hearing or at least a Breathalyzer test for all 13 members of the CFP selection committee. Alabama figures to be No. 1. But whether the Canes rise to second, third or fourth won't merit the dissection or outrage that follows.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush had a wrap protecting his left hand during the second half of the 48 - 37 victory over Wake Forest . Wimbush passed for a career-high 280 yards, ran for 110 more and totaled three touchdowns as the Irish (8-1, No. 3 CFP) won

Wimbush returned for the second half while Adams rode a stationary bike on the sideline as the Irish (8-1, No. 3 CFP) totaled season highs in passing (340) and total yards (720) to set up a showdown with No. 9 Miami (No. 10 CFP) next Saturday.

Wake Forest (5-3) did not go down without a fight, piling up 587 yards in offense against a defense directed by former Demon Deacons coordinator Mike Elko.

Wimbush was 15-of-30 passing and threw a 34-yard touchdown to sophomore Chase Claypool, who had a career-high 180 yards on nine receptions. Wimbush also had 110 yards on 12 carries and the second TD was a 50-yarder in the second quarter.

Adams, who was fifth nationally with 1,169 yards entering the game, exited after gaining just 22 yards on five carries. His injury occurred when he dove into a pile after a Wimbush fumble with about 2½ minutes left in the first quarter. Adams underwent concussion protocol, was cleared but did not return and didn't need to — the nation's No. 6 rushing offense, averaging just under 318 yards a game, gained 383 on the capable legs of Wimbush, Deon McIntosh (63 yards) and four others who surpassed Adams' output.

- Brandon Wimbush passed for a career-high 280 yards, ran for two touchdowns and shook off an injury as No . 5 Notre Dame won its seventh straight, beating Wake Forest 48 - 37 on Saturday in a game in which Irish running back Josh Adams missed the second half because of a concussion.

Wake Forest quarterback John Wolford threw for 331 yards and accounted for three touchdowns (two passing) and running back Matt Colburn became the first back to run for 100 yards against Notre Dame this season, finishing with 120.

TAKEAWAYS

Wake Forest: For the second straight week, Wolford and the offense had big games. A week after totaling 625 total yards, with Wolford throwing for 461 yards and 5 TDs, he threw for 331 against the Irish. But the Demon Deacons remain one win short of bowl eligibility.

Notre Dame: The Irish showed their depth after the injuries to Wimbush and Adams. Sophomore backup QB Ian Book threw a 1-yard TD pass when Wimbush got hurt and then rushed for 54 yards after Wimbush's day was over. Tony Jones Jr. (59), wide receiver Kevin Stepherson (42) and Dexter Willliams (33) all surpassed Adams, who was hurt a day after Notre Dame began selling "33Trucking" hats (Adams wears No. 33) to tout his Heisman Trophy candidacy and aid a hardship fund for athletes.

PLAYOFF IMPLICATIONS

Notre Dame was third in the first College Football Playoff rankings behind No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Alabama and just ahead of No. 4 Clemson and did nothing to hurt its position. The next rankings will be released Tuesday night.

UP NEXT

Wake Forest: Plays at Syracuse next Saturday.

Notre Dame: Plays at Miami next Saturday.
