Offensive Breakdown Ahead of BYU

Written by Irish Trending

Notre Dame is four games into the 2022 season, and there are still a lot of questions and concerns about this offense. Notre Dame’s offense was extremely underwhelming in their first three matchups, only amassing a total of 55 points combined against Ohio State, Marshall, and Cal. However, week 4 was a different story, as the Irish were able to muster 576 total yards of offense (289 passing and 287 rushing) totalling 45 points, leaving a lot of Irish fans in a much better mood going into the bye week. Many Irish fans are questioning how much of that offensive success was on North Carolina’s poor defense, and how much of it was on the offense turning things around. Now, I personally believe the offensive play calling and the execution did improve, not 45 points per game improved, but improved nonetheless from the Cal to the North Carolina game. I really enjoyed seeing the running backs average nearly 6 yards per carry on North Carolina's home turf, seeing Drew Pyne’s increased confidence through the game, the OL creating big holes for the RBs and giving Pyne more time, and the different ways we got our players involved. BYU should answer a lot of still lingering questions about this offense and what to expect moving forward, but I expect 30-40 points scored by Notre Dame this weekend in Vegas.
