Returning to the New York metro area for the first time since the Pinstripe Bowl, Notre Dame looks to get to 4-0 on the season with a victory over Syracuse. For the Irish, it’s their first opportunity to play on the road, though lucky to start in the friendly confines of MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands instead of the Carrier Dome.
The Orange present a litmus test for the run defense, with Brian VanGorder’s unit going up against a Top 20 rushing attack just a week before they welcome Stanford to town. The Syracuse defense has also shown flashes this season, though look susceptible through the air.
Another game, another Saturday evening affair. So let’s sit down, enjoy ourselves during another live blog.
