The Irish actually did it. Notre Dame took down No. 1 Clemson in a double-overtime thriller Saturday night. It will be a game remembered for a long time, but that memory will be influenced by how the Irish finish the season.

And next up on the to-do list for Notre Dame is a road game at Boston College on Saturday against former Irish quarterback Phil Jurkovec.

To talk all things Irish and quarterback play, Tyler James and Eric Hansen invited former Irish quarterback Malik Zaire back onto the podcast. Zaire is doing work as a college football analyst for CBS Sports and launched a podcast earlier this year: On the Other Hand with Malik Zaire.

On the podcast, Zaire discussed the double-overtime Irish victory over No. 1 Clemson, the performance of ND quarterback Ian Book, the play calling of offensive coordinator Tommy Rees, the mindset of a transfer quarterback that Jurkovec may be playing with at Boston College, why Chip Long didn't last at ND and more.

Then James and Hansen offered predictions for the Notre Dame-Boston College game in the "Place Your Bets" segment (23:35) before answering questions from Twitter (31:10).
