The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 6-2 and ranked #14 in the country. The Irish are coming off of a much needed bye week, but before they got a week’s worth of rest, Notre Dame dismantled Caleb Williams and USC for a 48-20 win in South Bend to reclaim the Jeweled Shillelagh Trophy.
While the Irish and Pitt don’t play for a traveling trophy, and no one under the age 65 actually considers this a rivalry, the two teams have played 70 times. It’s one of those, “you bastard,” games that always seems to be on the schedule (whether they are or not).
Pat Narduzzi is a worthy villain because Notre Dame lives in his head rent free, but the fact that Phil Jurkovec is no longer the starting quarterback for Pitt is a bit of a downer. I mean... this was supposed to be fun.
