No. 6 Notre Dame heads to Blacksburg, Va., this weekend to take on No. 24 Virginia Tech. The Irish (5-0) are coming off a dominant win against Stanford thanks in large part to the play of its defensive line.

For a better understanding of Notre Dame's success up front, Tyler James and Eric Hansen invited former Irish defensive lineman Ian Williams to join this week's episode of "Pod of Gold."

On the podcast, Ian shares his thoughts on Notre Dame's defensive line play, what makes Mike Elston such a good defensive line coach, the success of defensive tackle Jerry Tillery, the challenge of defensive line recruiting at Notre Dame and more (:44).

Ian sticks around for the “Place Your Bets” segment to offer predictions for Saturday’s Notre Dame-Virginia Tech game and beyond (23:33).

Then Tyler and Eric provide the latest edition of “Keeping up with the Joneses” (3632), nominate linebacker Te'von Coney for “Punctuation Mark of the Week” (39:18), and answer questions from Twitter (41:02).

"Pod of Gold" can now be listened to in a number of different places. The audio file can be found at the end of this story. It should appear on the various podcast platforms soon after being uploaded here.
