Notre Dame Fighting Irish BYE Week Game Thread

A totally chill day

Brendan McAlinden

I really thought this was going to be a quiet and chill week with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish having this Saturday off. I thought I could step away a bit — and then recruiting decides to blow up (in the best of ways). Recruiting activity has a way to bring the past and the future together to put the present in order to understand the scope of the situation.

That situation, if you need a painted picture, is pretty good for the Irish right now. Undefeated and ranked #2 in the country, Notre Dame will find out just how much respect the college football playoff committee has for them and their resume with the first playoff rankings coming up on Tuesday.

And so, we get to spend the weekend watching college football — and of course — eating delicious cheeseburgers. Let’s have some fun today, and like our fearless quarterback Ian Book, SLIDE headfirst for everything.

WHAT TO WATCH

Here are some of the more interesting games to watch on Saturday:
