Tale of the Tape: Leading Rushers – Chris Tyree vs. Ethan Payne

·1 min read

Will Chris Tyree have more opportunities to run with the ball going forward? For Notre Dame’s sake, it better happen against Marshall because there should be a chance to open things up more than there was against Ohio State. While we still haven’t seen all of what Tyree is capable of, he has nowhere to go but up after the Buckeyes essentially made him a nonfactor. The good news is very little so far has indicated that he is not the answer at running back.

The Herd will counter with Ethan Payne, who already has a couple of touchdowns on the season. He has an opportunity to keep his production going at Notre Dame Stadium, though that won’t be easy. He will have to focus on why he succeeded in his first game while keeping in mind that it won’t all work against a better defense like the Irish’s. Such is the life of a running back.
