CHALK TALK BRYAN DRISKELL F or the Notre Dame offense, the 2015 season served as a break- through campaign. After years of inconsistency with the ground at- tack, the Fighting Irish put together one of their best statistical perfor- mances in a couple of decades. • Notre Dame had its best points- per-game average (34.2) since 2005, and set school records with 6,063 yards of total offense and 7.0 yards per play. The Irish were fueled by big plays, led by wide receiver Will Fuller, who was chosen in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Hous- ton Texans. • Success on the ground was also historic. Notre Dame had its most yards per game (207.6) since the 2000 season. The return of senior Tarean Folston will help the Irish rushing attack become far more efficient.
