Notre Dame defense focused on stopping Georgia's rushing tandem

Georgia at Notre Dame: Bulldogs Haven't Played a Northern Road Game Since 1965

The only other meeting was in the 1981 Sugar Bowl. After all, the Bulldogs have not one, but two of the best running backs in the Southeastern Conference in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Chubb is a two-time 1,000-yard rusher - 1,130 in 2016 and 1,547 in 2014.

The Notre Dame-Georgia game has featured high demand and the contest has been sold out for weeks, but fans may still be able to locate seats through the secondary ticket market. A really, really big mirror - one large enough to capture his full 6-foot-8, 315-pound frame.

-STAR J.R. Reed, the son of former National Football League standout Jake Reed, made his debut for the Bulldogs against Appalachian State and made a quick impression, coming up with a sack. Across the front, they're the biggest team we'll play when they line up.

"Sometimes it just takes a game or two to get that feel back, and for him to have a better grasp and understanding of where to get those tough yards and where just to preserve your body". It was the second of his career after scoring on a 58-yard run against UMass in 2015. Overall, he completed 17 of 30 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown. Adams saw his backup in Dexter Williams explode for 124 yards last week while Chubb was involved in a split backfield of his own. He finished the game with 161 yards on 19 carries. Among them was one tackle for a loss. Still, throwing him in for a first start at Notre Dame Stadium is not ideal. Kickoff for the first ND regular-season game against an SEC opponent in 12 seasons is 7:30 p.m. EST (NBC-TV). His 1-yard plunge late in the first quarter gave the Bulldogs a 10-3 lead, and his 3-yard run in the second quarter put Georgia up by two touchdowns.

"What I appreciate about Coach Elko most is he allows his players to play fast and play free", senior linebacker Drue Tranquill said Wednesday. Our team is excited. "He's got a great arm, and so obviously we don't have a lot of film on him, but we hear the kid is a gamer, and I'm assuming his coaches and his staff are going to do a great job having him ready to play, having him feeling confident. But Davis, it looks like, is going to get back", Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday in South Bend, presumably based on Monday media report.

But Michel said that couldn't be further from the truth. "For us, they're a good team, it's a great challenge, so we're all looking forward to it".

Overnight the fire sparked a fire across the river in Washington and prompted mandatory evacuations of multiple communities. Officials said firefighters have kept the fire's growth moderate Tuesday after it exploded over Monday night.

Per usual, both teams' quarterbacks will be a focal point in this one, albeit for different reasons. The junior delivered in his starting debut against Temple last week, showing off his arm (184 yards and two touchdowns) and legs (106 yards and a touchdown).

A year after failing to live up to expectations - internal and external - as a unit, the Fighting Irish line showed in Saturday's season-opening dismissal of Temple that it's both willing and capable of carrying the whole offense across six (Tommy Kraemer and Robert Hainsey will continue to rotate at right tackle) burly backs.

Logical thinking would conclude Jake Fromm won't be tasked with too much Saturday. No, he trusts true freshman Jake Fromm with his first start.

Teammates are confident he will perform just fine.

"I thought him commanding the huddle was like that of a vet, someone who has done it for four or five years", said Payne, a senior. It's a special place, I know that. I think he's very comfortable with making those calls. "You know, I think everybody says, well, he's a freshman, and you know, he's only had a couple of snaps". I definitely respect them, but good competition is hard to come by. Brown had, for his standards, a slightly above average game against Temple, finishing with 80 receiving yards and a touchdown.

"Well, they're hard to tackle one on one at the second level", Kelly said.
