The Notre Dame football team came back late against Virginia Tech in Week 6, and here, we grade out the offense in the 32-29 victory.
It didn’t feel like a game where the Notre Dame football team’s offense scored more than 30 points. It felt like a long, difficult grind. There was nothing about it that really inspired confidence, even if there are glimpses of promise. After all, for all of Notre Dame’s challenges, there are also plenty of bright spots.
The thing is, when the offensive line is consistently struggling in a way that they haven’t in over a decade, and there is a three way quarterback battle halfway through the season. That tends to take up people’s attention, and it overshadows things like a wide receiver you didn’t expect to succeed who is now playing well.
Even over the course of one game, it’s difficult to be excited about a unit like the offensive line showing improvement, because of inconsistencies elsewhere. So, it’s important to break down the game into the simplest terms sometimes. What went right, and what went wrong? And, of course, how much does all of that matter in the grand scheme of things?
So, here are offensive grades for Notre Dame-Virginia Tech.
