Notre Dame loses captain for remainder of year

Notre Dame’s defense will be playing a man down the rest of the season as Bo Bauer suffered a knee injury at practice Tuesday.

When asked about how the injury impacts Notre Dame for the rest of 2022,

Freeman shared that Bauer’s loss isn’t just about him making tackles himself.

“Just the energy, the ability to motivate our players, it’ll be a tremendous loss for us.”

and 6.5 pass breakups during his time at Notre Dame.
