Notre Dame (3-3) will try to get back on track against UNLV (4-3) on Saturday in South Bend. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. EST at Notre Dame Stadium and will be televised exclusively on Peacock. Here are five keys to an Irish win.

UNLV’s health on offense

UNLV brings an offense to South Bend that scores 29 points per game, good for 70th in college football this season. But over the last few weeks that unit has been dealing with injuries at key positions. The Irish need to take advantage of that attrition.

Quarterback Doug Brumfield is in concussion protocol and is considered day-to-day, according to reports by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Starting running back Aidan Robbins is also questionable after leaving UNLV’s last contest against Air Force with a knee injury.
