Notre Dame's Run Defense Will be Tested vs Georgia

May 15, 2019

Last year’s Notre Dame defense did not have many areas for opponents to exploit. They did everything pretty well and some things exceptionally well.

If they had one weakness, it would have been stopping the run. I’m not even sure it’s fair to label it a weakness, but it wasn’t quite as strong as their pass defense, which was elite.

They finished 21st in rushing S&P+, which was primarily because they didn’t give up the big play very often (they gave up only three runs of 40 yards or more all season).
