Notre Dame football: 3 Keys to victory against Virginia in Week 11
Get after Brennan Armstrong
The Cavaliers have an outstanding quarterback in Brennan Armstrong, who can fill up the stat sheet in a hurry. Armstrong has dominated opponents through the air this season, leading the FBS in total yards, but the problem for him in this one is that he is banged up, and will be facing a tough Notre Dame defense.
If Armstrong can play, you can be sure that Marcus Freeman is going to dial up a defensive game plan that is going to put a lot of pressure on him. The Cavaliers have a true freshman as their backup quarterback, and while he is a talented kid in his own right, he is nowhere near the talent that Armstrong is.
