The Irish are back on the field this weekend and it’s an unfamiliar turf. They will travel out to Las Vegas,
the city that never sleeps, to take on BYU for another rendition of the Shamrock Series.
Marcus Freeman and his team are favorites on the road against a ranked Cougar squad.
They have plenty of playmakers so we will look at a few who aren’t topping their statistical data.

He has the capability of being extremely disruptive for an offense and could rack up plenty of tackles and big plays come game time.
