Notre Dame football at Virginia: 3 things to watch
Kyren Williams and the run game
We start out with the run game, as Kyren Williams and company have been outstanding as of late, dominating since coming out of the bye week. While Williams did not get over 100 yards this past week against Navy, he has been one of the best backs in football over the last month and is putting this Notre Dame offense on his back.
Williams is also getting some great play behind him, as Logan Diggs, a true freshman, has been outstanding as of late as well. He is a guy who is going to play a huge role for this program once Williams heads to the NFL, and we are getting a glimpse at what could be the future feature back in South Bend.
