The Irish keeping their foot on the gas in preparation for 1-4 Stanford at home
SOUTH BEND, Ind – Back from their win over their first ranked opponent, Notre Dame looking for a four-game win streak.
Notre Dame is coming into week six riding a three-game win streak after beating previously sixteenth ranked BYU.
“Look at the end of the day, the credit goes to them. They went out there and performed and executed some of the things that we’re asking,” said Offensive Coordinator Tommy Rees.
Next up is the fight for the Legends Trophy, under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium against Stanford, a team that sits at 1-4 this season.
“We’re playing a team that prides itself on toughness and being football smart,” Defensive Coordinator Al Golden added.
“Still a lot of areas to get better. Our mentality’s not going to change,” Rees mentioned.
Going into the next game, confidence has continued to increase for guys like Jayden Thomas, who has emerged as an offensive weapon with three catches, 74 yards and one touchdown against BYU.
With those numbers, Thomas could be a target quarterback Drew Pyne calls on to make big plays.
“Got my number called and Drew gave me a chance and I went up and got the ball. We preach in our room that the ball has our logo on it, so it’s our ball and we should come down with it,” Thomas said.
With success in their last three matchups, the Irish can count on being challenged, especially on their home turf.
“It’s going to be another great challenge and the challenges aren’t going to stop. It’s really important that we remain consistent throughout,” Golden added.
The Irish will take on Stanford at 7:30 p.m. from Notre Dame stadium this Saturday.
