The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are back in action this week as they travel to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels in a top 25 matchup. Both the Irish and North Carolina had a BYE last week, so the “short week” Friday game thing shouldn’t have any impact at all.

On Monday, Notre Dame released their depth chart for the game — and it has some significant changes.

OFFENSE

DEPTH CHART — OFFENSE

QB RB WR WR WR TE LT LG C RG RT
QB RB WR WR WR TE LT LG C RG RT
12 Ian Book 23 Kyren Williams 88 Javon McKinley 11 Ben Skowronek 3 Avery Davis 89 Brock Wright 74 Liam Eichenberg 69 Aaron Banks 52 Zeke Correll 78 Tommy Kraemer 72 Robert Hainsey
7 Brendan Clark 25 Chris Tyree 8 Jafar Armstrong 18 Joe Wilkins Jr. 18 Joe Wilkins Jr. 24 Tommy Tremble 73 Andrew Kristofic 76 Dillan Gibbons OR 75 Josh Lugg 75 Josh Lugg 77 Quinn Carroll
- OR 20 C'Bo Flemister - - - OR 87 Michael Mayer - - - - -
- - - - - OR 85 George Takacs - - - - -

Obviously the big news here stems from two massive losses along the offensive line. Zeke Correll will take over for Jarrett Patterson at center now that Patterson will be out for the year with what’s reported to be a Lisfranc injury. Right next to him at right guard will be Josh Lugg as he takes over for Tommy Kraemer who had an appendectomy on Friday night. Outside of the line changes (which will likely be how this line looks for the remainder of the season) the offense stays the same.

DEFENSE

OR 7 Isaiah Foskey - OR 56 Howard Cross III OR 7 Isaiah Foskey OR 24 Jack Kiser - - - 16 KJ Wallace K.J. Wallace -

There are subtle, but big changes on the defensive side of the football. Freshman cornerback Clarance Lewis had been listed as an “OR” on the depth chart alongside TaRiq Bracy. The “OR” is no longer there, and Lewis has essentially took over as the starting field cornerback. Freshman Rylie Mills is back on the depth chart this week at defensive tackle with Jayson Ademilola out with an injury. Remind me again about Brian Kelly NOT playing freshman....

SPECIAL TEAMS

39 Jonathan Doerer 39 Joanathan Doerer 19 Jay Bramblett 65 Michael Vinson 19 Jay Bramblett 32 Matt Salerno 25 Chris Tyree
38 Dawson Goepferich 38 Dawson Goepferich 38 Dawson Goepferich 44 Alex Peitsch 14 JD Carney OR Lawrence Keys III 8 Jafar Armstrong

No changes on special teams this week. Despite the “OR” next to Matt Salerno’s name at punt returner with Lawrence Keys III — Matt’s the sure starter (as he’s been over the past few weeks).
