  • Notebook: Injuries mean bye a time to heal
    INDIANAPOLIS – Notre Dame may be 3-0, but coach Brian Kelly said the upcoming bye week is a welcome sight since he has such a banged-up team.

In motion

Former Bishop Dwenger star Tyler Eifert got quite a workout behind the line of scrimmage in Notre Dame’s victory over Utah.

The Irish tight end, who had two catches for 15 yards, was in motion on nearly every play against the Utes.

Coach Brian Kelly said the decision to move the tight end around a lot was to create matchups that would favor Notre Dame.

“We felt like our best plays on the field were getting Duval (Kamara) and Mike Floyd into some one-on-one matchups because of their size. It certainly proved to be effective for us in the passing game,” Kelly said. “Then the utilization of motion was to get us into some advantageous run looks. It was the combination of both getting Duval in a position, and Mike, to be effective for us in one-on-one, and then the motioning was simply for us to have a better look in the run game.”
