BRADY QUINN Notre Dame

After being held without a touchdown pass in last week's victory over Georgia Tech, the Heisman-hyped senior threw for three touchdowns to lead No. 4 Notre Dame to a 41-17 victory over No. 19 Penn State at South Bend, Ind.

Quinn overthrew a few open receivers and had a few passes dropped, but completed 25 of 36 for 287 yards. Through two games he has 533 yards passing.

He completed 12 of 16 for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the second quarter alone as the Fighting Irish opened a 20-0 lead.

Notre Dame Coach Charlie Weis said the only bad pass he thought Quinn threw was when he overthrew John Carlson in the end zone early in the second half and the Irish had to settle for a field goal.

"I thought Brady Quinn was a heck of a football player coming in and he didn't do anything to change my mind," Nittany Lion Coach Joe Paterno said.
