Notre Dame tight end Michael Mayer has set a new program record.

He scored two touchdowns in the Fighting Irish’s Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday, giving him 7 for the season. That’s a new all-time single-season record for a Notre Dame tight end.

Mayer finishes his sophomore season with 71 catches for 840 yards and those 7 scores. He was a crucial weapon in Notre Dame’s offense all season long. His 71 receptions is good enough for No. 8 all-time for a single season at Notre Dame.

No other Notre Dame pass catcher had more than 48 receptions this season. He also tied Kevin Austin for the team lead in touchdowns this year.

Mayer is likely to return in 2022 as one of the most-feared tight ends in the country. He’s expected to be the top target in Notre Dame’s passing game again next season.

He needs 905 yards next season to crack the top 10 of Notre Dame’s all-time receiving yards list for a career.
