Notre Dame football: 3 key advantages against Florida State
Notre Dame’s Defensive Line Should Dominate
It’s become a running joke, but it’s a sad joke at the same time. Since the end of Jimbo Fisher’s time at Florida State, the Seminoles have not had a Power Five caliber offensive line. They, arguably, haven’t had an AAC or Mountain West quality offensive line at times either.
It’s been abysmal, has stunted the development of many of their quarterbacks, helped to waste Cam Akers’ college career, and was a huge part of why Willie Taggart got fired. Mike Norvell has worked to improve this, but they still aren’t up to speed.
On the other hand, you have Notre Dame’s defensive line. The Irish have a two, and even three-deep defensive line that could start at most programs. The starters on the Notre Dame defensive line are all capable of being All-Americans.
The Notre Dame football team opens up their 2021 regular-season slate against Florida State, and here are three things to watch for.
So, what does this mean? It’s an advantage to the Notre Dame defensive line, and they should be living in the Florida State backfield. Expect very little room to run, and the Florida State quarterbacks to be running for their lives all game long.
