Your Notre Dame Fighting Irish are a double-digit-win team for the fifth consecutive season following a 55-0 annihilation of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Senior Day. With this team seemingly on cruise control to close out the season and one last tilt with the Stanford Cardinal to come, let’s take a look at some things we saw in this contest to watch in the future – short-term and long-term.
Any NFL scouts looking to see what Notre Dame’s top pass-rusher is capable of got a full showcase on Saturday. The junior from California (who, fun fact, played for one of my rival high schools) was a terror in the backfield who had Jordan Yates running for his life. Foskey’s pass rush generated not one, but two defensive touchdowns – the first a pick-six that landed in the arms of Jack Kiser, the second a strip-sack recovered and returned by Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa.
