Notre Dame’s 568 yards of total offense were the most in the ACC that week, and ranked fourth among all Power 5 teams on the weekend. It was the fourth time this season Notre Dame’s offense has surpassed 500 yards of total offense in a single game, and it marked the most by an Irish team since 2019 vs. Bowling Green (573). It was the most by the Irish against a Power 5 opponent since 2017 vs. Wake Forest (710). Entering the game, Notre Dame was averaging 34:12 time of possession, a figure which led the ACC.
