Notre Dame has won at least 10 games in four consecutive years going into the 2021 college football season. The Irish went 10-2 in 2020, making the College Football Playoff for the second time.

Notre Dame players to watch

Notre Dame joined the ACC in the 2020 season but is back as its usual independent self. The Irish have important shoes to fill, with Wisconsin transfer QB Jack Coan set to take over the starting job. Previous leader Ian Book is now in the NFL after passing for nearly 9,000 yards for Notre Dame.

But the Irish should be strong on the ground thanks to RBs Kyren Williams (1,125 yards in 2020) and Chris Tyree (496 yards in 2020).

Defensively, safety Kyle Hamilton could be the biggest star. Hamilton earned All-ACC honors and a AP third-team All-American selection last season with his 63 total tackles 4.5 tackles for loss and an interception.
