Notre Dame 34, Virginia 27

CFBFR Player of the Game: C.J. Prosise, RB, Notre Dame
Three things to know…
1. C.J. Prosise might be able to carry the offense

Obviously Notre Dame will miss Malik Zaire and Tarean Folston, but Prosise has looked promising through two games.

Prosise ran for 155 yards yards on 17 attempts, with 42 yards coming after contact and breaking four tackles in the process.

Through two games, Prosise has picked up a respectable 81 yards after contact on 47 rushing attempts.

2. Zaire struggled before the injury

Prior to his season-ending injury, Zaire had completed just five of 14 attempts thrown five or more yards down the field.

We charted six of Zaire’s 18 passes as uncatchable, one of the worst single-game rates we’ve seen this so far this season.

In limited action, DeShone Kizer completed five of nine attempts thrown five or more yards downfield, including two of four at 10 or more yards.

3. Will Fuller needs to step up

Without Zaire, Fuller will need to continue making the type of plays which helped Notre Dame to victory in the final moments of Saturday’s game.

Fuller caught five passes for 124 yards—impressive overall stats. But it took 13 targets for Fuller to haul in five receptions.

In contested situations, Fuller managed to catch just one of seven passes.

Kizer will need to be able to rely on Fuller to make the tough plays if the Notre Dame offense is to keep chugging along.
