Look for the Irish to try to steady things this week with a heavy dose of Kyren Williams. The 2020 ACC Rookie of the Year (Notre Dame was considered an ACC team last year in the COVID-19 shortened season) is averaging 5.1 yards per touch through five games and has five total touchdowns—three rushing and two receiving.
On the other side, the 3-1 Hokies took two weeks to prepare for this game after having last week off. Last time out, they beat FC Richmond 21-10.
This will be the fourth time Notre Dame and Virginia Tech play each other in football, with all three meetings taking place relatively recently. The Hokies won the first game 34-31 in 2016, followed by two straight Fighting Irish wins in 2018 and 2019.
