Running back Kyren Williams ran for two touchdowns as No. 10 Notre Dame marked an historic occasion by defeating visiting Duke 27-13 on Saturday afternoon at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind.

It was Notre Dame's first football game as a conference member, with the Irish agreeing this summer to shed its independent status in order to play a 2020 Atlantic Coast Conference schedule. The change -- for now a one-year arrangement -- was made when the coronavirus pandemic created havoc with scheduling at a time when the status of the season was uncertain.
