The Irish take to the road for an early start time against Navy.
This game should be a fairly easy one for Notre Dame,
as long as they just keep improving as they have been throughout the course of this season.
This is a contest that Navy is outmatched and the Irish should put up some gaudy numbers.
Here are some wild, but realistic, projections of what happens on Saturday afternoon.
Coming off the effort against Clemson, this is almost assured that the Irish will keep the ground game going.
Both Logan Diggs and Audric Estime eclipsed the 100 yards mark against
the Tigers and the offensive line was pushing around the vaunted Clemson line.
The Navy defensive line isn’t nearly as talented or as big and the Irish line should be creating
massive holes for the backs to run through. Expect them to continue to churn out big yardage on the ground.
This Navy team doesn’t have much going for them on offense at all.
After the Irish dominated Clemson’s rushing offense,
allowing just 90 yards on 25 carries, the defense is beaming with confidence.
Yes, the Mids attack is very different from what the Tigers do,
but I can’t see Navy really running over this defense. Their passing attack is pretty much just a few shots here and there,
so this should be another banner performance for the Irish defense.
