Notre Dame RB Audric Estime Takes a Shot at BYU

Written by Tony Ghaul

Notre Dame takes on #16 BYU on Saturday night in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium.

On Wednesday, Notre Dame RB Audric Estime took a shot at BYU’s talent, saying the Cougars don’t have the players to match up against those of Notre Dame.

“They’re a good team, they’ve got a lot of good players, but I feel like their players don’t match the players that we have.” Estime said. “So if we just play our football, I feel like we should handle business.”

Estime’s comments will now be bulletin board material for BYU. One of the most pivotal matchups of this game is BYU’s run defense against Notre Dame’s rushing attack. BYU’s defense will have the opportunity to prove whether it has the talent to compete against Notre Dame or not.

Estime is the leading rusher for Notre Dame. Through four games, Estime has 264 rushing yards averaging 4.9 yards per carry. He has shared the load with fellow running back Chris Tyree who has 41 carries this season. BYU’s defense has struggled against the run over the last three games.
