The Notre Dame football team will take on BYU next Saturday, and the big question is whether or not they can stop Jaren Hall.
When it comes to the Notre Dame football team, the questions have been mounting since the summer. Would they have enough talent at wide receiver to make that spot a legitimate weapon? Can the new coaching staff win? Will the defense be able to stop the likes of Clemson and USC?
Well, through the first four games, the Irish have been a roller coaster to cover, as there have been so many ups and downs. Now, as they sit and watch the games this Saturday due to their bye week, their next opponent will be doing the same.
The BYU Cougars played on Thursday night, beating in-state rival Utah State by the score of 38-26 thanks to the passing of Jaren Hall. He is having a monster season for the Cougars, and next weekend, he has to be priority No. 1.
Notre Dame football to face a tough stretch the rest of the way
For the season, Hall has already thrown for over 1,400 yards and has connected on 12 touchdowns against only one interception. He is also doing a tremendous job distributing the football, as four players already have 15-or-more catches on the young season.
His play has led to the Cougars being ranked No. 19 overall going into Thursday night’s win, and for the Irish, this is the first game in a string of games that will make or break their season.
The Notre Dame football team has an elite tight end in Michael Mayer, and in one recent 2023 NFL Mock Draft, he lands with the Chargers.
The big question is whether or not the Irish will be able to stop this passing attack, as the Cougars can hit you from so many angles, and Hall is so good at protecting the football. Notre Dame football has the talent in the secondary to get stops, but the defensive line will need to continue to progress and get pressure if they are to get Hall off of his mark.
