The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 4-0 after their huge 4th quarter over the Wisconsin Badgers. Now the Irish come back home to Notre Dame Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bearcats in a Top 10 matchup.

On Monday, Notre Dame released their early week depth chart for the game against Cincy, and it’s almost the same as last week.

#10 Drew Pyne OR #25 Chris Tyree #16 Deion Colzie #29 Matt Salerno #83 Jayden Thomas #85 George Takacs #79 Tosh Baker #52 Zeke Correll #78 Pat Coogan #56 John Dirksen #77 Quinn Carroll
OR #12 Tyler Buchner - - - - #88 Mitchell Evans - #50 Rocco Spindler - - -

Only one big change here — and it’s at tight end. Mitchell Evans was added to the depth chart at tight end as well as Joe Alt. Of course, Joe Alt is listed as a backup at right tackle (and played some left tackle against Wisconsin) but the Irish are using him more and more as a third tight end for blocking reasons. The quarterback depth chart is obviously on everyone’s mind, but there’s likely nothing to learn until later in the week. If Coan is healthy — he’s the starter.

No changes at all on the defensive side — and why would there be? Kurt Hinish was out against Wisconsin, but is expected to return for Cincinnati. This unit is getting better and better, and Freeman is using a lot of guys on this depth chart to help make it happen.
