DeShone Kizer: Irish offense 'clicking' this year

CLEMSON, SC -

The number six Fighting Irish will take on the number 12 Clemson Tigers Saturday night under the lights at Memorial Stadium. Despite dealing with multiple injuries so far this season, Notre Dame has fared pretty well.

The Irish have outscored their opponents by 85 points this season – averaging 41 points per game.

The blue and gold offense rushed for more than 450 yards last week against UMass.

They tallied more than 220 yards in the air against the Minutemen.

Redshirt freshman quarterback DeShone Kizer is partly to thank for that after stepping in when starter Malik Zaire was injured at Virginia.

He says things are really clicking for the Irish offensively – due to an amazing and solid offensive line, a highly skilled wide receiver corps and one of the best running backs in the nation this year.

“We’re really just getting things rolling. With all of those guys out there all playing great, along with one of the best backs in the country right now, there’s really nothing left to have but confidence right now and scoring every time you have the ball," said Kizer.

Clemson has outscored its opponents by 73 points this season, averaging about 37 points a game.
