Brian Kelly and his staff were able to play a ton of guys and several player much earlier than usual as the game was over at halftime.

- Playing almost 60 players players is always good and it likely could have been more if Notre Dame wanted to push losing the shutout, but it was pretty evident that was important to Brian Kelly and the staff. 

- Perhaps the only negative is Notre Dame couldn't find a way to get its young players in the secondary into a 55-0 game. Is it a lack of talent, comprehension or performance? I'm not sure, but it's a telling sign there might not be as much confidence in them and the spring will be huge for several players. 

- Freshman offensive lineman Rocco Spindler made his debut on the offensive line and got in 16 snaps. It's a good thing that Spindler's first live game snaps won't be potentially in Columbus, Ohio next fall. 

- The snap counts were also low, which is good. Yes, Notre Dame only has one more game, but being fresh for a long trip to Stanford can only be a positive as the Irish have struggled in Palo Alto.
