Notre Dame QB Jack Coan ready for ‘weird’ reunion game against Wisconsin
In one of the most anticipated matchups of the college football weekend, Notre Dame will be taking on Wisconsin at Solider Field in Chicago.
For Notre Dame quarterback Jack Coan, it will be a reunion game as he goes up against his friends and his former team in the Badgers.
Per centredaily.com, Coan is looking forward to the “weird” matchup.
“It’s definitely going to be weird,” the 22-year-old grad transfer quarterback said. “It’s going to be a lot of my friends I’m going to be playing against, guys I still talk to today. But at the end of the day, it’s just another football game and I like to think I won’t get more excited for one game than the next.”
Notre Dame is off to a 3-0 start but it hasn’t come without plenty of hiccups. The Irish struggled against Florida State before pulling off an overtime victory and it took a last minute touchdown drive for them to survive against Toledo.
Coan will look to improve his timing against Wisconsin, something he thought was off for him in Week 3 against Purdue for Notre Dame.
“I think my timing was off a little bit (against Purdue) and I need to be a little more accurate,” said Coan, who will be facing a Badgers defense that is first nationally against the run (33 yards allowed per game) and second in total defense (194.5 yards). “I can do my part getting the ball out of my hand and communicating better.”
A win for Notre Dame would help solidify their case as one of the better teams in college football this season. A loss could ruin any shot they have at the playoffs.
