We definitely have different stories going on when it comes to the receiver front between Notre Dame and Cincinnati. Tight end Michael Mayer continues to play like a poor man’s Rob Gronkowski both in size and production. While it might not necessarily be the best thing for the Irish’s all-around receiving corps, it hasn’t cost them just yet, so this remains a marginal issue at best. The question right now is will the Bearcats’ defense see Mayer as such a threat that it will open up opportunities for other Irish receivers?

Don’t be fooled by those numbers for the Bearcats’ Tyler Scott. While he leads his team in receiving yards and is the only Bearcat with two receiving touchdowns this season, he is one of six players on his team with at least five receptions. He actually ranks third in the number of receptions behind Alec Pierce and Michael Young. So even though Scott is something of the focal point for this corps, production can come from pretty much anyone there.
