Notre Dame broke an all-time program record in its 40-8 win over Oregon State in the Sun Bowl on Friday.

The 32-point margin of victory is the largest in program history for a bowl game. The previous record for Notre Dame was its 28-point win over Hawaii in the 2008 Hawaii Bowl.

That stat was confirmed by Notre Dame PR shortly after the end of the game on Friday:

Notre Dame was dominant on both sides of the ball against Oregon State.

Despite missing numerous key starters on offense to transfer or opt-out, the Fighting Irish averaged 7 yards per play in the win. Quarterback Steve Angeli, who was making his first career start, threw for 232 yards and 3 touchdowns in the win. Receiver Jordan Faison was named Sun Bowl MVP after he caught 5 passes for 115 yards and 1 touchdown.

Defensively, Oregon State really struggled to move the ball against Notre Dame’s starters. The Beavers scored a late touchdown, but were otherwise ineffective. Oregon State finished the game with 197 total yards.

The win means Notre Dame finishes the 2023 season with a 10-3 record. This is the first 10-win season of the Marcus Freeman era.
