NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Jack Coan threw for 269 yards and a touchdown and Kyren Williams ran for two scores as No. 8 Notre Dame shut down Navy’s triple-option attack in a 34-6 victory Saturday. 

Coan, a graduate transfer from Wisconsin, completed 23 of 29 passes, with a 70-yard scoring pass to Kevin Austin late in the first half for coach Brian Kelly's Irish (8-1).  

Williams, who had a career-high 199 yards rushing last weekend in a 44-34 shootout victory over North Carolina, scored on runs of 1 and 20 yards, finishing with just 95 yards on 17 carries. 

The Irish offense totaled 430 yards.
