Stop me if you heard this before... the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are one of the hottest teams in the country and they are about to go to one of the more hostile places to play a college football game.
But hey... it’s not November.
The Irish travel to Blacksburg to play the Virginia Tech Hokies for a night game inside Lane Stadium. Maybe it would have even been the destination for ESPN’s College GameDay had the Hokies not lost to the Old Dominion Monarchs a couple of weeks ago.
Still, the Hokies managed to beat Duke on the road and they are ranked #23 in the nation. For all the fuss I’ve made already about Virginia Tech not beating a ranked opponent at home since 2009, the Irish haven’t won a true road game against a ranked opponent since the Temple Owls in 2015 (before that it was the Oklahoma Sooners in 2012).
One terrible streak has to give!
