Tale of the Tape: Team Stats – Notre Dame vs. Marshall

·1 min read

Notre Dame can’t possibly figure out what kind of team it has after opening the season against Ohio State. Everyone knew the Buckeyes were the superior team, and they proved. Therefore, the numbers the Irish have below should be taken with a grain of salt, especially since they remain highly ranked. Hopefully sometime over the next couple of weeks, these numbers will reflect a winning team a lot more.

Marshall’s first game against Norfolk State was utter dominance, and you can see that in the numbers it has. However, going from a Football Championship Subdivision program to one like the Irish is about as monumental a step as one can take on the schedule, and the Herd are taking it. The numbers you’re looking at now likely is as good as it will get for the Herd this season. If you’re a Herd fan visiting our site (and thanks if you are), let it soak in from now until kickoff in South Bend.
