Syracuse Preview: Orange You Glad We’re Here

Worst title ever. This will be only the 9th all-time meeting between Notre Dame and Syracuse which doesn't seem right. Whether it's the basketball rivalry coloring things stretching back to the Big East days or the fact that this will be the 6th meeting in the past 16 years on the gridiron, this feels like [...]

Florida State Preview: Talking ‘Bout Their Woes

It seems just like yesterday that Florida State was no longer the 9-win team incapable of breaking through and suddenly had morphed into an elite National Championship team. There was a time from mid-2011 through mid-2015 that the Seminoles were on a scorching hot 52-4 run that probably isn't fully appreciated yet historically. Today, things [...]

Virginia Tech Preview: Exit Light, Enter Night

This weekend ticks off a Notre Dame road game bucket list. Although the first game of this series came 2 years ago during the forgettable 2016 season (can you remember much from the previous meeting?) it's this inaugural trip to Lane Stadium that has been among the Top 10 must-visit homes in college football for [...]

Michigan Preview: Nearly the Rare Home Underdog Game

Following a lovely 4-year break we now welcome the odorous Michigan Wolverines back to Notre Dame once again. When we last saw the winged helmets the Irish delivered one of the sweetest victories this century, sending Michigan on its way to a 5-7 season and a firing of head coach Brady Hoke. Now, with the [...]

Stanford Preview

The Fighting Irish head to Palo Alto this Saturday with much on the line. Before we get into the deep stuff below, on the surface Notre Dame has lost its last 4 trips to Stanford which sucks really bad. The last time the Irish beat Stanford on the road the first edition of the iPhone [...]
