Notre Dame-Georgia: What the Irish Learned

Sept. 11, 2017

The prime-time atmosphere Saturday night in South Bend as 24th-ranked Notre Dame and 15th-rated Georgia clashed qualified as buzz-worthy. Now the Irish head out on the road the next two weekends, after a pair of home games to open the year in the friendly confines of Notre Dame Stadium. So consider these leftovers from Notre Dame's game against the Bulldogs: 

1. The Temple and Georgia defenses may end up the extremes. It will take 10 more weeks of football to complete the script, but this remains a possibility: Notre Dame may never be as productive this season as it was in week one when the Irish ran for 422 yards and gained 606 yards overall--and the Irish may not face a defense the rest of the way as effective as the Georgia version that limited Notre Dame to 265 total yards, only 55 of those on the ground.
