Fall weather came in a hurry. With temperatures in the mid-70s earlier this week and expected to be back there as of Monday, Stanford was welcomed to South Bend by temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, a stiff wind and rain all but assured this afternoon.
That weather could be familiar for the Cardinal and Irish, a forecast mighty close to the last time these two teams met in mid-October in South Bend. We’ll see if the results are the same in a few hours.
For those of you looking for a livestream of the game, here’s your link.
For those of you here for the live blog, see below. In a game that has the Cardinal currently favored by two points, the Irish will need to play their best football to make it to 5-0.
With two victories behind them in impressive fashion, Notre Dame has a chance to start September with three straight victories for the second time in three seasons. Off to a clean start, the Irish are tied for the best in the nation in turnover margin, sitting pretty at +6 heading into Saturday night’s game.
On paper, this looks like another lopsided football game. But against Purdue the past few years, nothing is assured.
With a night game in a neutral site putting an end to a 69-year consecutive game streak between the two Indiana rivals, we could be in for a one-sided Shamrock Series victory or a game that brings the Irish into their first bye week searching for answers.
As usual, we’re here for you. The live blog will be rolling, ready to discuss alternate uniforms, running back rotations and Brian VanGorder’s defense. Or the game. Really, whatever else you’d like to discuss.
With another Saturday evening football game on tap on NBC, so let’s have some fun.
Here we are.
On a beautiful evening for football, it’s finally time for Notre Dame and Michigan to actually play football. That means after a long week of talking, hypothesizing and over-analyzing just about every subplot known to man, we can finally watch the Wolverines battle the Irish on the field of play.
As usual, we’re here for the live blog. In a heated rivalry game, it’s likely to get a little intense in here, so consider this the friendly reminder to keep your heads and actually try to enjoy things. Keep it clean, don’t get snippy and let’s have fun watching together with a few thousand of our favorite internet friends.
