Following the first announcement of the College Football Playoff rankings, the Fighting Irish will look to extend their winning streak.
Landing at No. 10 in the College Football Playoff rankings, Notre Dame is scheduled to host Navy on Saturday. After throwing for 213 yards and a touchdown during the 44-34 win over North Carolina, quarterback Jack Coan is expected to propel the Fighting Irish to another confident win.
Coan will likely continue to build his connection with tight end Michael Mayer. Despite missing the meeting with Virginia Tech due to a hip injury, Mayer has racked up 465 receiving yards and three touchdowns through seven games.
The Irish will continue to lean on running back Kyren Williams, who rushed for 199 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries last week against the Tar Heels. It was his second big game in a row after going for 138 yards on the ground in a win over USC. His emergence comes after a relatively slow start to the season after the junior failed to top 100 yards in any of his first six games.
Although Navy is coming off a win over Tulsa, the Midshipmen will be tested by the Fighting Irish on both sides of the ball. Defensive lineman Isaiah Foskey leads Notre Dame with eight sacks, followed by Jayson Ademiloa with three. The last time these schools met back in 2019, Notre Dame put up 52 points in a dominant win.
