In a blowout win against Wake Forest, there were some players who stood out from the pack for Notre Dame football because of how they played on offense.
It’s not exactly a surprise that in a 45-7 win, Notre Dame football would have quite a few great offensive performances. That guys like Audric Estime could rush for 115 yards and a touchdown and not actually be among the top-graded offensive players, according to PFF.
Top graded Notre Dame football offensive players against Wake Forest
Not exactly a shock that Hartman is right at the top of the list. The quarterback who currently ranks fourth in all of college football for career passing touchdowns had himself perhaps his best game as a member of the Fighting Irish.
Hartman finished with a 92.1 overall grade thanks to 21-of-29 passing for 277 yards and four touchdowns. It’s worth pointing out he didn’t run much. Maybe that’s for the better.
Granted, Notre Dame football’s backup quarterback only got 11 snaps, but he certainly made the most of them. Considering all the talk about the Irish bringing in a transfer quarterback next season, perhaps Angeli is making the case they don’t necessarily have to if they don’t get their top target.
The backup quarterback earned himself a 91.1 overall grade thanks to 3-for-3 passing for 36 yards and Notre Dame’s final touchdown of the day. It was a nice exclamation point on the Irish’s final home game of the 2023 season.
The Notre Dame football team has been waiting a long time this season for Jaden Greathouse to really step up and lead the offense. Injuries have basically derailed his freshman season, just when it looked like it was really started to get going.
However, Jaden Greathouse might finally be healthy and just in time to lead Notre Dame Football to a win in its final home game of the year. Greathouse finished with a 82.7 overall grade thanks to three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown. It turns out that’s a season (and career) high in receiving yards in a game, and matches his highs for catches in a game.
