Irish Come Out Hot on a Cold South Bend Day

The Notre Dame offense appears to be unfazed by the cold and snow in Indiana.

Notre Dame’s first drive started with a false start, as the patented Notre Dame first-play-of-the-game penalty reared its ugly head yet again. However, DeShone Kizer and the rest of the Notre Dame offense quickly turned it around, producing an outstanding drive that resulted in a touchdown for Josh Adams. Take a look:

Kizer was four of four passing for 72 yards on the drive. The Notre Dame offense saw a lot of open wide receivers against the Virginia Tech defense, as Adams, Sanders and St. Brown all caught a pass. A good start for an offense that had an opportunity to tune up against a relatively weak opponent last week in Army.

Following a fumble recovery, the Notre Dame offense has some great field position and an opportunity to take a commanding early lead against the Hokies. Now we’ll see exactly what the Irish can do with this golden opportunity.
