If you’re looking for dominant running backs, Saturday’s game between Notre Dame and Virginia Tech won’t be for you. However, we can confidently say that Kyren Williams is the better player in this matchup. Not only does he have an advantage in nearly every rushing category, but he also is much superior at receiving. No, that probably won’t play a key role in the final result, but it surely gives the Irish confidence nonetheless.

The Hokies are countering with Jalen Holston at running back. While he has been in Blacksburg since 2017, opposing defenses hardly have had to plan around him. He never has rushed for more than 58 yards in his collegiate career, and he’s reached the 50-yard mark only three times. All that can be said about him is that if he’s going to hold to form and outperform Williams as far as yards a carry, he also better win another matchup somewhere else on the stats sheet.
