It’s the big one. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play host to the Ohio State Buckeyes, and there is a boatload on the line for both teams. Besides remaining games against both respective chief rivals in the USC Trojans and Michigan Wolverines, this will be the biggest game of the season for both teams.
While there are plenty of reasons to believe that either team could survive a “good loss” on Saturday night and still make the college football playoff, for the Irish at least, this game is about national respect and demanding its place at the table for the foreseeable future.
Also... the whole thing is going to be a lot of fun.
