Notre Dame has scratched and clawed its way to a 4-0 start this fall but awaiting them will be perhaps the toughest foe of the 2021 campaign in the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Cincinnati makes their first trip to Notre Dame Stadium this Saturday and is listed as a slight favorite over the Irish. Notre Dame will be getting and addition to its roster Saturday though as veteran running back C’Bo Flemister is set to make his season debut.

Flemister missed the first four games of the season and was involved in an overnight car accident back in the spring, but Brian Kelly made it clear that he’ll be available to play versus the Bearcats.

Flemister ran 58 times for 299 yards and five touchdowns as the third running back on the depth chart last season.

Notre Dame has averaged just 2.3 yards per carry through the first four games of 2021.
