Some Notre Dame Statistics to Chew On

A little Irish coffee this a.m.

Feeling melancholy right now.  Knowing the Irish are 4-0 and that a third of the regular season is over already.

Here are some numbers from the NCAA official statistics after four games:  Most everything is defensive for obvious reasons.

Total defense 16th

Scoring defense 4th

Red zone defense 8th

Sacks tied for ninth with 14 and 91 loss yards

Turnovers gained – tied for second with 13

Turnover margin 5th  5 fumbles and 8 interceptions

Passes intercepted 2nd  8

National player rankings:  Irish players who show up in national NCAA FBS rankings

Passing efficiency – Everett Golson – 95th

Interceptions – Bennett Jackson and Manti Te’o – tied for 6th  (3 each)

Punting – Ben Turk 63rd (40.74)

Punt Returns – Devonte’ Neal T-82

Field Goals – Kyle Brindza – T-25

Solo Sacks - Stephon Tuitt - 1 (6)

Sacks (OA/A) – Stephon Tuitt – T-4, Prince Shembo – T- 91, Shelton Day – T-91

Tackles – Manti Te’o – T-31

Tackles for Loss – Stephon Tuitt – T-33

This was gleamed off the Notre Dame statistical records.

In the Michigan game, 60 players saw action.

Chris Brown earned his first start against Michigan.

Chris Badger, Joe Schmidt and Will Mahone saw their first action.

Jalen Brown for the first time did not get in the game.

Hanratty, Hendrix, and Heggie have not played since Navy.

Manti Te’o – Some Heisman numbers in the making:

Tackles – 38  16 OA / 22 A

Fumbles Recovered – 2

Interceptions – 3

Odds and Ends:

Notre Dame has not been scored upon in the first quarter.

Running back Theo Riddick leads the team in rushing (63/251/2) AND receiving 14/117/0

12 receivers have caught passes.

Opponents have returned 2 punts for 6 yards.

Kyle Brindza leads the Irish in scoring with 23 points.  6/7 FG and 5/5 PATs
