  06/22/22 - Isaiah FoskeyrJr/2024, Notre Dame, 6-5, 260 (DS#1 DE) + More +

  Like Iowa State's Will McDonald, Notre Dame defensive end Isaiah Foskey was wise to eschew the loaded 2022 crop of edge rushers and hold off for at least another year. At 6-foot-5, 260 pounds, Foskey has a ton of scheme versatility. He could play with his hand in the dirt in a 4-3 or come off the edge standing up in a 3-4 and excel at both. The 2022 season offers him the chance to really break out and make a name for himself outside the shadow of other draft hopefuls at his position. - Irish Sports Daily

  Notre Dame defensive back Brandon Joseph entered his third collegiate year with plenty of hype and 2022 NFL Draft first-round upside, but pundits cooled on him after a slow start with Northwestern. A fresh spot after transferring to Notre Dame should do him a world of good. He will have plenty of eyes on him after replacing 2022 first-round pick Kyle Hamilton. If he can even slightly replicate Hamilton's productions, that could be enough to merit an early round selection. - 247Sports.com

  Kyren Williams and Kyle Hamilton, two junior star players for No. 5 Notre Dame, announced Friday they will not play in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 9 Oklahoma State so they can instead prepare for the 2022 NFL draft. The two were Associated Press preseason first-team All-Americans, running back Williams as the all-purpose player and Hamilton at safety They were also two of Notre Dame’s seven captains during an 11-1 season. "Glory to the Lord! DREAM BIG," tweeted the 5-foot-9, 199-pound Williams, who rushed for 1,002 yards and 14 touchdowns and also had 42 receptions for 359 yards and three scores. He also returned punts and kickoffs, averaging 128.4 yards per game in all-purpose yards. "Thank you Notre Dame," tweeted the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Hamilton, who injured his right knee in Notre Dame’s 31-16 victory over Southern California on Oct. 23 and missed the final five games. In seven games, Hamilton had 35 tackles, four passes broken up and three interceptions. - AP College Football

  2021 CHUCK BEDNARIK AWARD FINALIST: Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame,...Hamilton leads the Irish with three interceptions and has 35 tackles and four pass breakups in seven games this season. Earlier in the season, he was named a First Team Midseason All-America selection by the Associated Press, Sporting News, CBS Sports, ESPN.com, The Athletic and Athlon Sports. Hamilton opened the season with two interceptions in Notre Dame's road-overtime win over Florida State. He was the first Irish player to have two interceptions in a game since Alohi Gilman in 2018 against Syracuse. For his efforts against the Seminoles, he earned LOTT Impact Player of the Week honors. - Notre Dame Football

  11/27/21 - Jack CoanrSr/2022, Notre Dame, 6-3, 218 (DS#7 QB) + More +

  Jack Coan threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and No. 5 Notre Dame finished off the regular season with a 45-14 victory over Stanford on Saturday to keep its playoff hopes alive. The Fighting Irish (11-1, No. 6 CFP) won their final seven games following a home loss to Cincinnati but will likely need some help next week to get into the College Football Playoff for the third time in the past four seasons. Stanford (3-9) lost its seventh straight game to end the season following an upset of then-No. 3 Oregon for its longest losing streak and most losses in a season since a 1-11 campaign in 2006.

The Cardinal were outscored 173-46 over the final four games. This game wasn't competitive from the start as the Irish forced a three-and-out on the first possession and answered with a 74-yard drive capped by Coan's 16-yard TD pass to Braden Lenzy. Coan added another TD pass to George Takacs and the Irish built a 24-0 halftime lead. He finished 26 for 35 for 345 yards with the 1-yard TD run in the third quarter. Jonathan McGill intercepted Coan's pass on the first drive of the second half to set up a 13-yard drive capped by Austin Jones' 5-yard run. That ended Notre Dame's streak of not allowing a TD at 219:17 of game action since North Carolina scored in the fourth quarter on Oct. 30. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  On a day when No. 6 Notre Dame did little wrong in a 55-0 shutout of beleaguered Georgia Tech on Saturday, coach Brian Kelly made a pitch for his team's postseason aspirations in the College Football Playoff. "It's an improving team that continues to do the little things the right way," Kelly said. Jack Coan threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns in a little more than a half and the Fighting Irish (CFP No. 8) had two defensive touchdowns for the second time this season in winning its sixth straight game since its 24-13 home loss to No. 3 Cincinnati Oct. 2. Coan, a grad transfer from Wisconsin, completed 15 of 20 passes. He had first-half touchdown strikes of 52 yards to Michael Mayer and 20 yards to Logan Diggs as the Irish took a 45-0 halftime.

Coan exited after one series in the third quarter and was replaced by true freshman Tyler Buchner, who ripped off a 68-yard run on his first play. With Coan directing the offense, and the Irish defense hounding Georgia Tech quarterback Jordan Yates all afternoon, Notre Dame improved to 10-1, reaching the 10-win level for the fifth straight season by outgaining coach Geoff Collins' Yellow Jackets (3-8) by a 514-224 yardage margin. "That's a really good football team," Collins said "We got out-reached, out-executed and out-physicalled throughout the game." The shutout was the first at Notre Dame for first-year defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman and first by the Irish since a 52-0 whitewash of South Florida on Sept. 19 of last season when the Irish reached the College Football Playoff for the second time in three seasons. The Irish have now gone three games without allowing a touchdown. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said the No. 7 Fighting Irish had a "tough week" with more than a dozen players battling a flu bug that kept some of them out of the lineup Saturday night against Virginia. The ones able to play were more than enough. Jack Coan threw three touchdown passes and Notre Dame extended its regular-season winning streak against Atlantic Coast Conference schools to 23 games with a 28-3 victory. On a night when a 101-degree fever kept defensive end Myron Tagovalia-Amosa out of the lineup, Rylie Mills moved over from tackle and had three sacks. In their first game without star wide receiver Avery Davis, who tore an anterior cruciate ligament last week against Navy and is out for the year, Braden Lenzy and Kevin Austin both caught scoring passes. "They had a mindset with all that that this was the challenge they wanted," coach Brian Kelly said of his team.

Coan connected with Michael Mayer from 6 yards, Lenzy from 4 yards and Austin from 15 yards for the Fighting Irish (9-1, No. 9 CFP), who also stretched their road winning streak against teams from the ACC to 11 games. "Going into the week, when you lose a leader like AD, just someone who has put up a lot of good numbers, been a great player for us, it was definitely harped on to be more focused in what we do," Lenzy said. Virginia (6-4) played without quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who leads the nation in total offense with an average of 425.3 yards but did not dress after sustaining a rib injury in a loss to No. 14 BYU two weeks ago. The Cavaliers play at Pittsburgh next Saturday, with the winner gaining an upper hand in the ACC's Coastal Division race, and Mendenhall said he had no update on whether Armstrong would be available with another week. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  After getting an earful from Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, Jack Coan delivered the big blow - a 70-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Austin at the end of the first half - and the No. 8 Fighting Irish shut down Navy's triple-option attack in a 34-6 victory Saturday. "Coach was screaming at me because it was open the play before," said Coan, a grad transfer from Wisconsin who completed 23 of 29 passes for 269 yards. "He told me to throw it there, so that's exactly what I did. I followed his plan. When you can get the ball to a guy like Kevin Austin, he can take it the distance every time." The touchdown play ended a 5-play, 95-yard scoring drive that took one minute to complete and it provided a 17-3 halftime lead for the Irish (8-1, No. 10 CFP).

It was one of six receptions for Austin, who totaled 139 yards for the game. "It's a difficult game to prepare for," Kelly said after Notre Dame's fourth straight victory of the season after its 24-13 loss Oct. 2 to No. 2 (CFP No. 6) Cincinnati, a team that Navy battled to a 27-20 home loss Oct. 23. "I'm extremely proud how the team prepared all week and the way they executed. We were detailed and focused." Kyren Williams ran for 95 yards and two scores as the Irish offense totaled 430 yards. Williams, who had a career-high 199 yards last week in a 44-34 shootout victory over North Carolina, scored on runs of 1 and 20 yards. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  On a night when he had a 91-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, Kyren Williams once again gave credit to his offensive line as No. 11 Notre Dame held off Sam Howell and upset-minded North Carolina 44-34 on Saturday in a game that had over 1,000 yards in offense. "Their blocking means everything to me because I know what they do every week," the 5-foot-9, 199-pound Williams said after rushing for a career-high 199 yards on 22 carries. "I just appreciate all of my boys working collectively as a group." Coach Brian Kelly's Fighting Irish improved to 7-1 with their third straight victory - and ruined the 400th collegiate game for North Carolina Hall of Fame coach Mack Brown. "We did some good things with good balance on offense running it and throwing it," Kelly said. "I really love this team. I love their grit but I like they are getting better." The Irish won despite being outgained by the Tar Heels (4-4) in total yardage, 554-523. But the Irish outrushed the Tar Heels 293-223.

Despite the loss, Brown was impressed by both teams' play. "I thought it was a great game," he said. "Both teams played really hard, both offenses ran up and down the field ,and neither defense played great." Howell, who became the Tar Heels' first quarterback with over 10,000 passing yards in his junior season, finished with 341 yards on 24-of-31 passing with one touchdown and one interception. He added another 101 yards on 18 carries, one a 31-yard touchdown run that kept the Tar Heels in it at 41-34 with 7:23 to play. It was the third game this season he has passed for over 300 yards and rushed for more than 100. "He's a warrior," Kelly said. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Kyren Williams and No. 13 Notre Dame's offensive line took a big step forward Saturday night, withstanding Southern California's fourth-quarter rally for a 31-16 victory. With fellow running back Chris Tyree sidelined by turf toe, Williams had two short touchdown runs and a season-high 138 yards on 25 carries for coach Brian Kelly's 6-1 team, and after the game saluted his offensive linemen for his performance. "Shoutout to the O-linemen for working hard and making it possible," Williams said about the rebuilt line that lost four starters from last season. "I just had to have the mindset to dominate and not be stopped by anybody." Williams, a preseason Associated Press All-American who rushed for 1,175 yards last season, entered Saturday's game with just 370 yards. He also gained another 42 yards with a team-high six receptions.

Williams scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter while helping the Irish to a 17-3 halftime lead and then added a 1-yard run late in the third quarter to put the Irish up 24-3 en route to their fourth straight victory in the 92-game series. "Kyren ran with an attitude that was just pervasive throughout the entire offense.," Kelly said. "We needed to see our offense mature, and tonight the offense began to come together the way we wanted. We played faster. We put Jack (Coan) in position where the ball came out quick. It gave us the kind of offensive flow we've been looking for." Coan completed 20 of 28 passes for 189 yards and one TD, a 4-yard scoring pass to Avery Davis that put the Irish up 7-0 in the first quarter. Jonathan Doerer had a 21-yard field goal in the second quarter. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Jonathan Doerer kicked a 48-yard field goal with 17 seconds remaining, capping a dramatic rally to give No. 14 Notre Dame a 32-29 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday night. The Fighting Irish (5-1) tied it at 29 on Jack Coan's 4-yard pass to Avery Davis and a two-point conversion completion to Kevin Austin with 2:26 left. After forcing the Hokies to punt, Coan drove them 45 yards in seven plays, and Doerer split the uprights, sparing the Fighting Irish a second straight loss.

The Hokies (3-2) had taken command with an interception return for a touchdown by Jermaine Waller and another touchdown drive started by an interception and finished with a 19-yard run by Braxton Burmeister with 3:55 to play, but Coan returned after playing just the first quarter to lead the comeback. Freshman Tyler Buchner ran for a touchdown and threw for another for Notre Dame (4-2) after replacing Coan to start the second quarter, but his two second half interceptions both turned into Virginia Tech touchdowns. Kyren Williams ran for 81 yards and one touchdown and caught an 8-yard pass from Buchner for another score the Irish. Raheem Blackshear also ran for a touchdown for the Hokies and John Parker Romo kicked three field goals. - Notre Dame/AP College Football

  Chris Tyree returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown and Drew Pyne threw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter in relief of an injured Jack Coan, helping No. 12 Notre Dame beat No. 18 Wisconsin 41-13 on Saturday at Soldier Field. Brian Kelly became the winningest coach in Notre Dame history with victory No. 105, surpassing Knute Rockne in his 12th season with the Irish (4-0). Graham Mertz threw four interceptions for Wisconsin (1-2), including two that were returned for touchdowns in the final 2:30 to blow the game open.

Coan, a Wisconsin transfer, left with an apparent left leg injury in the third quarter with the game tied at 10. Pyne lost a fumble on his second possession, leading to a field goal by the Badgers, but otherwise the redshirt freshman was solid, going 6 for 8 for 81 yards. Coan played 22 games for Wisconsin over three seasons and was the starter for the 2019 team that reached the Big Ten championship game. He broke his foot in the runup to the abbreviated Big Ten season last year and Mertz claimed the starting job. A highly rated 2019 recruit, Mertz had some ups and downs in 2020, but Coan could see where things were headed and transferred to Notre Dame. The Irish were in need of an experienced quarterback as they replaced Ian Book and Coan has turned out to be a solid fit. Playing behind an offensive line that has used four left tackles so far this season, Coan completed 15 of 29 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked five times. He limped off the field, favoring his left leg, midway through the third quarter and went to the injury tent, and then the locker room. - Notre Dame/AP College Football
