No. 8 Notre Dame faced their toughest opponent to date Saturday as a fourth quarter blitz gave the Irish a 41-13 victory over Wisconsin. Things don’t get any easier this week as a No. 8 Cincinnati team with dreams of crashing the College Football Playoff party are headed to South Bend.

Here is the depth chart Notre Dame released on Monday ahead of the showdown with a few things of note.

Despite Jack Coan leaving the game versus Wisconsin and Drew Pyne stepping in admirably, Brian Kelly says there is no quarterback controversy assuming Coan is healthy. This week’s depth chart speaks to that as it remains the same:

QB1 – 17, Jack Coan, Grad. Sr.
QB2 – 10, Drew Pyne, Soph.
QB3 – 12, Tyler Buchner, Freshman
