This will be the first ever matchup for the Irish and the Cowboys. Oklahoma State lost to the Baylor Bears on a 4th and goal run that came just a couple of inches short.
While it remains a little disappointing that Notre Dame was unable to crack into the playoff mix, there is a lot of enthusiasm for this particular game. Marcus Freeman is the new head coach and everyone inside and outside of the program is eager to see what this all looks like.
The hiring of Freeman was an emotional time for the team, and given the outpouring of support by the players — it’s a safe bet that the Irish will be ready to get that first win for the new head coach and the loyal staff members that remain.
