College Football: Week 4 Notre Dame at Georgia

#7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-0) vs #3 Georgia Bulldogs (3-0)

***

NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH | INDEPENDENT

Coach: Brian Kelly

Notre Dame Players to watch

Senior QB Ian Book (6-0/208)

Book is 11-1 since taking over as a starter. He has a 6-0 TD/INT ratio after the first two games of ’19. Last year, he proved to be a better runner than expects and this year, he is the team’s leading rusher with 23 carries of 127 yards. Book’s strength is his pocket presence. Notre Dame averages close to 40 points per game with Book under center. If his OL gives him time, he’ll test the Bulldogs’ secondary.

Senior MLB Asmar Bilal (6-2/227)

Bilal replaces the departed Dru Tranquill in the middle of the Notre Dame defense. Bilal bring an instinctual awareness to the position, along with a physicality desired by HC Brian Kelly. physical presence in the middle. Bilal is second on the team in tackles heading into the Georgia game.

Senior DE Julian Okwara (6-5/240)

There was a lot of talk this off-season about Okwara’s potential to break Justin Tucks season sack record of 13.5. However, Okwara and fellow DE Khalid Kareem are off to a slow start in 2019. Through two games, Okwara and Kareem have combined for just seven tackles, two tackles for a loss and one sack in two games.  If Okwara has dreams of being a first round draft pick, this is the game he needs to show his maple moxie.

*Junior RG Tommy Kraemer (6-6/319)

Kraemer moved over from right tackle to play inside at right guard. His ability to pass protect and keep Book on his feet will be one of the keys to his game. The line has 4 returning starters , with over 60 career starts. So, far the running game hasn’t gotten going, so opening some holes against this Georgia defense and eating up the clock will be part of a successful game plan.

GEORGIA BULLDOGS | SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Coach: Kirby Smart

Georgia Players to watch:

*Junior LT Andrew Thomas (6-5/320)

Should Thomas declare after his junior season, he’ll be considered can’t miss first round pick. His ability to keep opposing defensive ends off QB Jake Fromm is this strength. This Georgia OL is one of the best in the country and should make a push at the Joe Moore Award (Nation’s top OL).

*Junior QB Jake Fromm (6-2/220)

Fromm took over from an injured Jason Eason in 2017. The true frosh had a solid season. He played well enough that Eason transferred to Washington State. Last year, Fromm put up another solid season, but was overshadowed in by the emergence of Trevor Lawrence and stellar play of Tua Taguvailoa. Georgia has several tough games on their 2019 schedule, Fromm getting off to a strong start against #7 Notre Dame would be good news for Bulldog fans.

*Junior RB D’Andre Swift (5-9/215)

Swift has over 350 yards from scrimmage in his first three games. With the departure of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, Swift is Georgia’s bell-cow in 2019. Georgia coach Kirby Smart recently said of Swift, “I think his biggest skill-set is making sure that other people are buying into the principles and values of the organization. … When Swift does that, that has a huge impact on the confidence of our team.” 

Senior S JR Reed (6-1/195)

Since transferring from Tulsa, Reed has started 32 consecutive games at safety, showing a nose for the football (four interceptions, two fumble returns for touchdowns) and a hard-hitting style that has made him one of the team’s leading tacklers each of the past three seasons.

His father, Jake Reed, played a dozen seasons in the NFL as a receiver for the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. He retired in 2002 with 450 receptions, 6,999 yards and 36 touchdowns.
