On defense, seven of Duke’s top nine tacklers are returning to build the wall for the team. Victor Dimukeje (8.5 sacks) and Chris Rump (6.5 sacks) will be leading the tacklers for the Blue Devils. Starting Center Jack Wohlabaugh will not be joining the corps because of a torn ACL last week.

Meanwhile, Notre Dame recorded 11-2 overall last season and stayed nationally ranked last season. The Fighting Irish earned a tour to the Camping World Bowl and nailed down Iowa State 33-9. In offense, Notre Dame will be led by Quarterback Ian Book who recorded 38 touchdowns and threw only six interceptions in his junior year last season. Book threw 14 touchdowns without any interceptions in his final 4 games with the team. Returning Wide Receivers Avery Davis and Braden Lenzy will lead the receiver corps. Adding dessert to the meal is Halfback Kyren Williams who will be leading the running back offensive line for the Fighting Irish. The new group of defense for Notre Dame will be led by Ade Ogundeji.
