Keep an eye on Notre Dame's secondary
with a handful of key starters injured or suspended. The Irish allowed 280 yards on 10.4 yards per attempt in Week 1's 50-47 loss to Texas. The schedule, though, looks pretty quarterback friendly moving forward. Their next two opponents, Michigan State and Duke, are breaking in new signal callers. The same holds true for NC State, Stanford, Virginia Tech, and USC. There's also not much to worry about with back-to-back games against Navy and Army in November. The only experienced and established passing quarterback Notre Dame will face will be Miami's Brad Kaaya. A little easier than last season after facing the likes of Clemson's Deshaun Watson, USC's Cody Kessler, Stanford's Kevin Hogan, and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett.
