The Notre Dame Fighting Irish look to rebound from an embarrassing loss last Saturday at the hands of Miami. Today, the University released the depth charts for the game. Let’s take a look.
Notre Dame Offensive Depth Chart VS Navy
|Equanimeous St. Brown||Durham Smythe||Mike McGlinchey||Quenton Nelson||Sam Mustipher||Alex Bars||Tommy Kraemer||Kevin Stepherson||Chase Claypool||Josh Adams||Brandon Wimbush|
|Miles Boykin||Alize Mack||Liam Eichenberg||Joshua Lugg||Trevor Ruhland||Hunter Bivin||Robert Hainsey||Cameron Smith||Chris Finke||Dexter Williams||Ian Book|
|Nic Weishar||OR Michael Young||or Cameron Smith||OR Tony Jones Jr.||Montgomery VanGorder|
|OR Brock Wright||OR Deon McIntosh|
|OR Cole Kmet|
Each and every starter on the Irish offensive starting 11 will have the opportunity to redeem themselves, as there are no changes to the roster. Playing a 6-3 Navy squad may seem like an opportunity to regain your confidence, but we know what Navy can do to you. The Irish will need to be sharp and focused.
Notre Dame Defensive Depth Chart VS Navy
|Julian Love||Nick Coleman||Drue Tranquill||Daelin Hayes||Jonathan Bonner||Jerry Tillery||Jay Hayes||Greer Martini||Nyles Morgan||Jalen Elliott||Nick Watkins|
|Shaun Crawford||Isaiah Robertson||Asmar Bilal||OR Andrew Trumbetti||Myron Tagovailola-Amosa||Kurt Hinish||OR Andrew Trumbetti||OR Te'von Coney||Jamir Jones||Devin Studstill||Donte Vaughn|
|Troy Pride Jr.||Julian Okwara||Micah Dew-Treadway||Brandon Tiassum||Khalid Kareem|
The defense has been... less than stellar against the run in the past two games. That does not bode well for a date with Navy. This could be a turning point in the year: coming off of a devastating loss and facing a formidable squad that will look to run the ball. Let’s hope Elko and his boys are up for facing the option this week.

|Justin Yoon||Justin Yoon||Tyler Newsome||John Shannon||Motgomery VanGorder||Chris Finke||CJ Sanders|
|Jonathan Doerer||Jonathan Doerer||Jeff Riney||Nic Weishar||Tyler Newsome||CJ Sanders||Tony Jones Jr.|
Tony Jones Jr. is officially the second return man, back with CJ Sanders. He replaces Michael Young on the depth chart.
We’ll find out if Notre Dame can rebound to the form in which they continually stomped inferior opponents this Saturday in South Bend.
