GRADUATE SEASON (2020)

  • DUKE: Started in the season-opening win over Duke (9/12). With the performance in the season opener, the Irish ranked first in the ACC (and 11th among all FBS teams) in tackles for loss allowed. Notre Dame succumbed to just five TFL; the Irish took home Pro Football Focus’ Offensive Line of the Week award after the season-opener vs. Duke, producing the highest-combined pass-block grade of any offensive line that week.
  • SOUTH FLORIDA: Started in the 52-0 win vs. South Florida (9/19) for an offensive line that allowed zero sacks on Irish quarterbacks and paved the way for six rushing touchdowns, the ACC’s most in a single game at that point in the season. With its performance, the O-Line was Pro Football Focus’ top-rated offensive line of the week for the second week in a row; Notre Dame’s 281 rushing yards were the most by any ACC team that week, and only one ACC team had posted more rushing yards in a single game previously that season. The 6.2 yards-per-rush by Notre Dame vs. South Florida ranked as the most that week and second-most in a single game that season at that point; Notre Dame posted 16 rushing first downs vs. South Florida, the most in a single game at that point in the season by any ACC team. The Irish converted both fourth-down attempts vs. South Florida. 
  • FLORIDA STATE: Started for an O-Line that allowed zero sacks, paved the way for 353 yards rushing, four rushing TDs, totaling 554 yards of total offense in the win vs. Florida State (10/10); the Irish rushed for 353 yards total, with two different players reaching the 100-yard mark. Prior to the contest, Florida State had allowed just 141.3 rushing yards per game; the last time Notre Dame had two players with more than 100 yards rushing in a game was in 2017 vs. Southern Cal (Josh Adams and Brandon Wimbush), and the last time the Irish posted more than 300 yards rushing was in 2019, also against Southern Cal; Eichenberg left the game for a short period with a blow to the eye. After clearance from medical staff, he returned to the game, playing through what appeared to be a swollen-shut eye; Notre Dame averaged 8.4 yards-per-carry vs. Florida State, the third-highest single-game figure in the ACC this season.
  • LOUISVILLE: Entering the game, Louisville had allowed just 156.8 rushing yards per game. Notre Dame rushed for 232 rushing yards, earning Kyren Williams his third 100-yard performance of the season. In the win, the offense held the ball for a whopping 36:15, including an impressive 7:55, 57-yard drive to finish out the fourth quarter and preserve the win. In all, the Irish had seven offensive drives on the day, and four of those drives took five minutes or more off the clock. The Irish boast the second-highest rushing offense average in the ACC (261.0 yards per game), and have allowed the second-fewest sacks on the season (seven) in the ACC.
