Yeah, I know I posted something about Notre Dame’s running game the other day, but I can’t lay off sharing this kind of information.
Notre Dame in back-to-back weeks went from its worst rushing performance in three seasons to its best in almost five decades.
The Irish’s 515 yards on 51 carries in a 49-20 win at Boston College on Saturday were the most since they amassed 597 yards against Navy in 1969. Their 10.1 yards per attempt broke the modern school record of 10.0 against Great Lakes in 1942.
This happened after they netted 55 yards on 37 carries in a loss to Georgia, their fewest since they managed 41 on 38 attempts in a loss to Arizona State in 2014…
The 515 rushing yards tied for second-most allowed by Boston College. Army ran for 516 against the Eagles in 2012 and for 515 in 1985.
Face it, guys. Georgia’s defense played its ass off against the run in South Bend.
