Notre Dame football loses two players for the season to ACL tears

This was not the news Notre Dame football fans wanted to hear a few weeks ahead of the season.

Pete Sampson, of The Athletic, posted on X, the website formerly known as Twitter, that defensive end Aiden Gobaira and tight end Kevin Bauman have been lost to the season due to ACL tears.

Gobaira was expected to be in the rotation on the defensive line this year. It’s a blow to the depth at the position. As for Bauman, the senior was going to get a lot more playing time with the departure of Michael Mayer to the NFL.

It’s extremely unfortunate news for both Bauman and Gobaira, but injuries are part of the game and the Irish will move forward.
