Re-watch Notes | Notre Dame Defense vs New Mexico

September 16, 2019

10 drives. That’s how long the game actually was in terms of Notre Dame caring about playing starters on defense. That was the first half and two more drives and the Irish defense allowed 3.8 yards per play during that time (when the game “ended” at 52-7).

That has to be remembered before anyone says something outlandish like the defense didn’t play well. It’s a fact that they did. They weren’t tested by a good team, but it doesn’t mean they didn’t play well.
