The Notre Dame football team takes on Purdue in Week 3 inside Notre Dame Stadium, and here are three things to keep an eye on.
With two wins in their back pockets, the Notre Dame football team will welcome the Purdue Boilermakers to town this Saturday in Game No. 3. The Boilermakers, like the Irish, also come into this game with a perfect record, but they did suffer a big loss this past weekend with running back Zander Horvath breaking his leg.
All told, this is another game the Irish should win, and they will be favorites in it, but here are three key things to keep an eye on in the matchup.
Notre Dame Football vs. Purdue: 3 things to watching Week 3
How the Irish work the quarterback spot
During the win against Toledo, we got to see true freshman Tyler Buchner get some action, and it will be interesting to see how he comes into play against Purdue. When he is in the game, it gives the offense a shot in the arm, as he has the ability to get the job done with his arm, and his legs.
Graduate transfer Jack Coan also was a hero in Week 2, as he led the game-winning touchdown drive, hitting Michael Mayer for the go-ahead score. Against Purdue, we are likely to see both quarterbacks, and with how the offensive line has played, it may be necessary to win this one.
