#2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 10-0 (9-0) VS #3 Clemson Tigers 9-1 (8-1)
Back when it was announced that the Irish were to join the ACC in football for 2020 (and that’s it) so many of us plotted Notre Dame’s path to the ACC Championship Game. While the path isn’t quite how most of us planned it, they are playing in Charlotte anyway.
Of course, the one thing that most sane people predicted (the media mostly chose to NOT have ND in the championship game) is that the foe will be the Clemson Tigers... again. It’s hard to imagine a regular season game having more hype than a conference championship game between the two teams — but that’s what it feels like.
There are a couple of narratives this week that headline this game:
- The return of Trevor Lawrence, James Skalski, Tyler Davis, and Mike Jones Jr. to the lineup. Much has been made about how the game in South Bend would have gone if these four players were available then.
- Notre Dame’s place in the college football playoff should they lose this game.
If you thought no one picked the Irish to win in the first matchup, the leadup to this game is going to drive you nuts.
