Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly: “It’s Hard To Beat Top 20 Teams On The Road.”

Yes it is Brian - but it’s what you have to do to win championships.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are preparing to end the regular season on a high note against the Stanford Cardinal, in Palo Alto. Brian Kelly has never beat Stanford at their house, and in his time at Notre Dame, Kelly is just 2-9 against top 20 teams on the road.

Kelly was asked about these struggles:

Yeah, playing top-20 teams on the road. It's hard to beat top-20 teams on the road. You know, I don't keep track of those records, but I'm sure there's been some really good games in that mix of 2-9, but you know, you go on the road, it's hard to win on the road, and if you're playing top-20 teams on the road, it's even more difficult. So you just prepare your team the best you can, and when you go on the road and you're playing top-20 teams, they're difficult competition. You're probably not going to be 9-2.
