Game #12

We’ve come to the final game of the regular season for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and despite Stanford being a pretty bad team this year, it’s a chance for Marcus Freeman and company to finish strong — and throw a little revenge on the platter for last year’s stunning loss in South Bend.

The Irish depth chart was released earlier this week, so let’s talk about it for a minute.

OFFENSE

2023 ND OFFENSE DEPTH CHART

Notre Dame still has Zeke Correll listed as the starter at center, but he entered the week under concussion protocol and is probably unlikely to be back in time to play Saturday. That means we will see Ashton Craig back in the middle after starting last week — a game in which he played well. WR Matt Salerno was back on the field last week, but is still not listed on the depth chart. If Salerno is still progressing, we will probably see more of him against Stanford.

No changes for the Irish defensive depth chart this week, and the health of the entire unit is pretty good. You could make an argument for more linebacker rotation THIS week — but it better not happen until that 26 point spread is covered.

More of the same, but I would really like to see Jordan Faison actually return a punt or two just so we can see it.
