Notre Dame QB Brandon Wimbush practiced Thursday, will play Saturday

Notre Dame QB Brandon Wimbush practiced Thursday, will play Saturday”

He's also added 402 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground and is a major reason why Notre Dame's offense has taken off of late. The Irish will be facing a North Carolina defense that is 89th nationally against the pass, allowing 245 yards per game. However, the pressure of being on the hot seat has served head coach Brian Kelly quite well.

"We'll go day to day and then make the decision on game day", Kelly said.

Junior running back Josh Adams has led that attack, ranking third nationally by averaging 131.6 yards per game. Quarterback Brandon Wimbush - whose role is in question Saturday due to a foot injury - is second at better than 80 yards per game. Tarean Folston rushed for 98 yards and two touchdowns.

After averaging a 72.2 completion percentage through first three games, his last two games have been well below that average at 56.6 percent, including him throwing his first two interceptions of the season. "I think we have guys that want to do more. I don't think we're even close to being at the level we know we can be at". "He's where we hoped he would be and we expect more progress to be made over the next couple of days". "We're going to have to be very disciplined in our gaps".

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will have quarterback Brandon Wimbush on the field Saturday for their road game against North Carolina. Book received more repetitions this week in practice.

What kind of impact will Chazz Surratt make? He'll need a big day for the Tar Heels to spring the upset. It only becomes more challenging after that-with the final three Irish contests against ACC squads-North Carolina State, Miami and Wake Forest-coming against a trio that now stands a combined 12-2 (after North Carolina State's win Thursday night against Louisville). The Tar Heels have lost over 15 players to season-ending injuries, many of which were starters.

MISSING MOMENTUM: The Tar Heels have been struggling dating to the final month of last season.

TURNOVER EDGE: Notre Dame has a clear edge on opponents when it comes to dealing with turnovers.

So far this season, the Irish have capitalized on opponents' turnovers, scoring 70 points off their opponents' 11 turnovers.
