5 Things I Didn’t Like: Notre Dame Struggles At Things They Used to Excel At Once Again

For the second week in a row, Notre Dame struggled against an inferior opponent that they should have been able to handle easily by struggling to do all the things they do so well over the last four seasons.

More big plays allowed

Notre Dame had given up four plays of 60 yards or more the last three seasons.
