CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- Notre Dame put it all together on its opening drive against Boston College on Saturday night, covering 92 yards on five plays from the opening kickoff for a touchdown and 7-0 lead just 1:48 into the game.

After freshman Bennett Jackson returned the opening kickoff 42 yards to midfield, quarterback Dayne Crist drove Notre Dame downfield like a machine. Armando Allen gained five yards on first down. Crist avoided a big pass rush and completed an eight-yard pass to tight end John Goodman.
With Boston College showing blitz pre-snap, Crist appeared to change the play and Allen gained 30 yards for a first-and-goal at the BC 7-yard line on a nifty run where he broke free after seemingly being stopped and gained another 10 yards.

Crist scored on a keeper, beating the Boston College defense to the front corner of the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown and the 7-0 lead with 13:12 to go in the first quarter. It was Crist's longest rush since he suffered blurry vision in the first quarter against Michigan on Sept. 11.
