Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Fighting Irish ranked at eight in the NCAA last week and they come into this upcoming game as the 12th-best team. Even with an undefeated record, the Fighting Irish came close to losing and that made them slip four places down. They opened up the season against the Florida State Seminoles and it took them extra minutes in overtime to secure a win. The following week this team won over the Toledo Rockets by only three points, 32-29. QB Jack Coan has been doing his job with 239 yards and two touchdowns but the defensive line needs a little more polishing.

Players to Watch: J. Coan QB (CMP 47, ATT 68, YDS 605, CMP% 69.1, AVG 8.9, LNG 55, TD 6, INT 2, SACK 10, SYL -53, RTG 167.1), T.
