Players to know

Notre Dame's 2022 depth chart is widely regarded as one of the best in the nation. At tight end, junior Michael Mayer is poised for a big year coming off an impressive 2021 season with 71 receptions and 840 yards receiving. He joins offensive lineman Jarrett Patterson as a member of the Phil Steele All-Independent first team.

Defensively, the Fighting Irish added Northwestern transfer Brandon Joseph, who was named to the AP first-team preseason All-America team, to their secondary this offseason. And, the team returns defensive end Isaiah Foskey, who charted 52 tackles and 11 sacks last season, leading Notre Dame's lethal defense. 

BOWL GAMES: When and where to watch every bowl game this season

The Fighting Irish had a strong 2021 season finishing with an 11-1 regular-season record, but ultimately fell to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl in a soul-crushing, two-point loss.
