California Golden Bears vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish

California Golden Bears 

The Golden Bears have shown early improvement this season under head coach Justin Wilcox. They outplayed the UC Davis Aggies and UNLV Rebels in the previous games.

In the first week of the season, California defeated UC Davis 34-13. In that game, Jack Plummer had 268 passing yards and three touchdowns in the game. Jaydn Ott had 104 rushing yards on 17 rush attempts. He also had 26 receiving yards on two catches.

California also won their second game of the 2022 season against the UNLV Rebels with a final score of 20-14. Plummer ended the game with 278 passing yards on 28 pass attempts and one touchdown. Ott also had 7.4 yards per touch for 52 rushing yards in that game.

The team has not reported any injuries so far this season.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish 

In the first week of the college football season, Notre Dame lost to Ohio State, falling to the Buckeyes 21-10. Marshall also defeated the Fighting Irish in the second week of the season with a 26-21 final score in favor of the Thundering Herd. Here, Notre Dame will look to end their losing streak against the Golden Bears.

Wide receiver Avery Davis will not be available for the 2022 season due to a torn ACL. Mitchell Evans won't join the Fighting Irish this season since he is still recovering from foot surgery. Jadarian Price had to miss the entire season due to an Achilles injury.

The presence of several players is still questionable for Saturday's game against California, such as Osite Ekwonu, Tyler Buchner, Cane Berrong, and Pat Coogan.
