After a long time away from South Bend, the Irish finally return home to Notre Dame Stadium. Met by Northwestern, the Irish have a chance to get back to their winning ways, against a Wildcat team that’s 3-6 and struggling in a less-than-stellar Big Ten.
Still, after a difficult to understand implosion against Arizona State, what Notre Dame team we see this afternoon remains to be seen. On defense, the Irish have given up 42 points a game over the last month after giving up just a dozen a game through the first five.
On offense, Everett Golson’s turnovers have marred the productivity of Brian Kelly’s best group since he’s taken over the program. On a Saturday where the Irish are prohibitive favorites, Northwestern fans still can think back to 1995 when the Irish were shocked as nearly four-touchdown favorites.
