Notre Dame Vs. South Florida: On Paper
SOUTH FLORIDA RUNNING GAME VS. NOTRE DAME RUN DEFENSE
The X-factor this weekend is South Florida’s offensive line, which had three starters listed as “unavailable” in last Saturday’s 27-6 victory versus FCS opponent The Citadel: left tackle Donovan Jennings (6-5, 338), left guard Demetris Harris (6-3, 337) and center Brad Cecil (6-4, 300). Reserve guard Sebastian Sainterling (6-2, 365), also was unavailable.
The combination of the wording and so many players from the same position group has been speculated on as the quartet dealing with the coronavirus, and their status for the Notre Dame game this weekend is uncertain at this point.
Gone from last season is tailback Jordan Cronkite, who led the Bulls with 687 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns.
Sophomore Kelley Joiner Jr. steps into the lead role after playing in 11 games and starting the final two in 2019. He finished second in rushing with 364 yards on 71 carries, and also hauled in nine catches for 108 yards. Versus the Citadel in the opener he carried eight times for 87 yards and three touchdowns.
