Notre Dame - 2021 NCAA Football Season Preview & Win Total Prediction

Date & Time: 8/23/2021, 12:00 AM UTC
Latest Odds: NDO/U 9
TV Channel: undefined

Notre Dame will head into the 2021 season without the services of the winningest QB in school history after Ian Book went to the NFL. The Fighting Irish will give the keys to the team to QB transfer Jack Coan from Wisconsin. Coan should have no issue in this system and leading this team but will lean on stud running back Kyren Williams until Coan is comfy in the system.

The Fighting Irish will also be without their top 2 receivers in Ben Skowronek and Javon Mckinley in 2021. This will allow the other receivers on the roster to get reps as tight end Michael Mayer will serve as a safety blanket for the new QB early on in the season.

Notre Dame was an elite defensive team that helped pour in the wins covering for a lackluster offense in 2020. Even with the pieces lost heading into this year the Fighting Irish are deep enough and talented enough too again put a great defense on the field. Kyle Hamilton will lead the defense as on of the best safeties in the nation protecting Notre Dame in the passing game.

The Irish are again a good team but this team will look different from years passed. A lot of unchecked boxes and a new QB will be the story for Notre Dame in 2021. The Irish will win a lot of games but the CFP is most likely out of the question until the Irish return to the standards of the past.
