Notre Dame Fighting Irish
After two poor games (one during a hurricane), DeShone Kizer got back on track last week against the Hurricanes. He was 25-38 for 263 yards passing, with 2 touchdowns and zero interceptions.
He also had 31 yards rushing in the game. The Navy defense has had instances of shutting down top-tier QBs, so don’t expect Kizer to light up the scoreboard in this one.
Josh Adams also bounced back in a huge way against Miami. The sophomore had 12 carries for 94 yards (7.8 ypc) and also found the end zone.
One key to the game will be his ability to convert third down runs, and keep that Navy option attack off the field. He should find holes in this one to make big plays down the stretch.
Receiver Equanimeous St. Brown was huge in the win last week. He hauled in 6 catches for 72 yards and a score.
The Navy secondary faces a tough test in the talented player, and he will be able to get open and break a few tackles after the catch.
The Notre Dame pass rush had a great game against NFL prospect Brad Kaaya, sacking him 5 times.
The defensive line will need to stay in their assignments, as the triple option is always a difficult defense to stop, but I think they will be up to the challenge this week.
Will Worth has run the triple option with ease the last few weeks. He has shown he is the perfect QB for the offense as he has racked up 7 rushing touchdowns in the last 2 games.
This week I look for him to be just as effective running the ball. If he carries the ball 25+ times he shouldn’t have any issues reaching 150 yards and multiple touchdowns against the Fighting Irish.
Although Chris High is listed as defensive back, the junior has been a key part of the running game this season. Last week he had 10 carries for 52 yards against South Florida.
With the great running ability of the QB position, he has not reached the end zone the last 2 games but he does have 5 on the season, so he will be a threat to score every time he touches the ball.
The Navy defense has been sporadic this year.
They have shut down the high-powered Houston offense, but struggled against a lesser talented South Florida team. Quinton Flowers was able to run and throw the ball at will.
Giving up 176 yards to the QB is never good for a defensive front seven, and I don’t expect the Fighting Irish to have any issues finding lanes to run through.
