South Florida vs Notre Dame Preview
Bulls coach Jeff Scott is looking for his second win in a row after his team handled Citadel, 27-6, last week. Scott will likely be using more than one quarterback, but the group should be led by Jordan McCloud, who was the team’s primary passer in last week’s win. McCloud went 11-16 for just 68 yards and a touchdown, but don’t be surprised if big-armed Cade Fortin makes his debut at some point against the Irish.
Scott, who says he’s “fired up” about getting the opportunity to play a storied university in a legendary stadium, isn’t focused on wins or losses as much as he is gauging his team’s mettle.
“I’m more interested in seeing how our players respond against a very talented opponent on the road than I am worried about the scoreboard and all of that kind of stuff,” Scott said this week. “Obviously, we want to win the game. That’s what we’re going up there to do, but there are so many things right now for us that we’re focusing on more than worrying about what the score is by quarter and by halftime or whatever. By and large, you worry about what you’re doing in front of you and look up at the scoreboard at the end of the game and you’ll be able to learn how you did.”
The Fighting Irish are coming off a 27-13 win over the Duke Blue Devils that saw their offense sputter early on before putting it all together later in the game. Notre Dame running back Kyren Williams had 19 carries for 112 yards and two touchdowns, and he also had 93 yards receiving. Look for quarterback Ian Book to lean on Williams in this game, as well.
The Irish quarterback took a bit to get warmed up against Duke, throwing one ugly interception while also catching a break after another pick was wiped away due to a defensive penalty. He finished the game 19-31 for 263 yards, a touchdown and the lone pick.
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly noted this week that his offensive line looked good in their debut against the Blue Devils, and he thinks that performance will be a bit of a stepping stone heading into this matchup.
“We’ve got a very good offensive line as a unit and getting them going is going to be so important for us. I think that the second half of the game, we could start to see our group coming together from that perspective. I think six new young players on the offensive side of the ball in the skill position, getting them a chance to get out there and start making some plays and gain some confidence, those are the things that we’ll take away that will help us in week two.”
