The Notre Dame Fighting Irish ended the season on a losing note in 2015. A Fiesta Bowl loss to Ohio State.
Head Coach Brian Kelly enters his sixth season on the sideline at the Northern Indiana based Institute.
Since coming over from the University of Cincinnati, Kelly is 55-23, and the program is taking on his stature.
The Fighting Irish come into the 2016 season in the preseason top ten. While most NCAA Football programs struggle with which player will be under center.
The Notre Dame coaching staff has the luxury of deciding between two talented quarterbacks.
Offensive Coordinator Mike Sanford and the Notre Dame offense returns quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire. Kizer took over as a true freshman after Zaire was lost at Virginia early in the 2015 season.
Kelly and Sanford have not ruled out a two-quarterback system but will probably name the starter at the end of fall camp.
Kizer threw for nearly 3,000 yards and got better each week. The Notre Dame offense is going to put up crazy numbers as the coaching staff and players are now comfortable in the system.
Running Back Tarean Folston returns after missing the entire 2015 campaign and backup Josh Adams did an excellent job with 835 yards as a true freshman. Wideout Will Fuller is now in the NFL.
Torii Hunter Jr and a few underclassmen must provide separation in the passing game. The offensive line must be rebuilt.
Two starters from the offensive line were selected in the top fifty picks of the 2016 NFL draft.
The 2016 Notre Dame defense led by coordinator Brian VanGorder, who is in his third season at Notre Dame.
Gone are linebacker NFL draftees Jaylon Smith and tackle Sheldon Day among others.
The opposition may have a tough time running between the tackles this season with the talent on the defensive line.
Louisiana native Jerry Tillery has next-level talent at the tackle position. There are question marks at linebacker and in the secondary.
It’s a chance for VanGorder to show what his recruiting classes are about on defense. There is talent, but it is unproven.
Underclassmen will get plenty of looks before the start of the season. Safety Drue Tranquill, who has two ACL tears, will be a starter at safety.
Notre Dame will open the season vs. The Texas Longhorns on September 3rd. There are also home dates with Michigan State, Miami, Florida and Virginia Tech.
