Quarterback Ian Bookbroke out in 2019 as the full-time starter at Notre Dame. He helped the Fighting Irish reach the College Football Playoff two years ago with a team driven by defense. With the spotlight on Book, he threw for 3,034 yards and 34 touchdowns to six interceptions. Last year’s jumpBook to the current season could determine how far Notre Dame goes. For what it’s worth, he’s 11-1 against ACC teams with the only loss to Clemson in a 2019 CFP semifinal.
Perhaps the biggest adjustment to Book in 2020 will be to set a top target. The Fighting Irish lost its top three recipients as a year ago Chase Claypool and Cole Kmet were NFL Draft picks and Chris Finke graduated. Junior tight endingTommy tremblecould be the next breakthrough pass-catcher in South Bend. Kmet caught just 15 passes two years before bringing in 43 for 515 yards and six touchdowns. Tremble had 14 catches and four touchdowns last year. Don’t be too surprised if Tremble takes a similar step forward.
You can’t talk about Notre Dame football without talking about defense. The Fighting Irish allowed the third fewest passing yards per game last season. If they continue to dominate the opposing quarterbacks, look to sophomore safety Kyle Hamiltonto lead the charge. Hamilton led the Irish with four interceptions as a freshman, bringing one back for a touchdown. He also made 41 tackles and broke out six extra passes.
We have Notre Dame ranked number 11 in our Preseason Top 25. Here’s the breakdown:
11. Notre Dame
After an outburst loss to Michigan, the Irish quietly won and went 11-2 for a season after making the College Football Playoff. With the return of QB Ian Book, Notre Dame should be powerful on offense. And the defense has to be strong, although the secondary is the biggest question mark there. But there’s a new twist this year: Notre Dame is eligible for the ACC 2020 title game.
