The Notre Dame Fighting Irish still have a season to finish despite the fact that it felt like this whole thing was over about a month ago. The Irish are back home to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies in an afternoon matchup.

The big question is... how much fight is really left in the Fighting Irish? Is there anything they can do to finish this season with a little dignity?


According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Irish are a 5 point home underdog to VT with an OVER/UNDER of 143.


Head Coach: Mike Young (4th season)
Season Record: 14-10 (4-9 ACC)
Key Players: G Sean Pedulla (15.8 ppg), F Justyn Mutts (13 ppg, 7.2 rpg)
Quick Overview: The Hokies are probably a much better team than their record shows, but they went on a 7 game losing streak in conference play which derailed everything. VT lost to Boston College in their last game, but took down Virginia in the game before.


When: Saturday, February 11, 2:00 PM EST
Where: Purcell Pavilion, South Bend, Indiana
How to Watch: RSN good luck
