The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will be trying to win its 10th game of the season on Saturday against the Stanford Cardinal in Palo Alto, California. The Irish haven’t won on The Farm since the 2007 season — and yes it was the game they robbed David Grimes of an unbelievable catch.
The Farm is a terrible place to play football. It’s half empty because no one gives a crap, and the field surface itself gives the term “The Farm” a whole lot of meaning — because it’s a god damn cow pasture.
According to the early week weather reports, it may be as bad as ever with a bomb cyclone approaching the west coast. It will be raining all week — and on gameday.
The forecast is calling for at least a quarter of an inch of rain before kickoff with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees.
Here’s a sweet shot of that bomb cyclone:
If there are any changes to the forecast, I’ll try to give a proper update before Saturday. Until then... you might want to keep all of this in mind when predicting the game. Notre Dame has a terrible history in games on the road with this type of weather. While the worst of the storm will be past palo Alto by then, it will most likely still be raining and the field will be a sloppy mess.
