Stanford at Notre Dame, 7:30 PM Saturday
The Fighting Irish finally figured out how to stop someone last week, holding NC State to 10 points. Unfortunately, that was less attributable to game plan and more because they were playing in Hurricane Matthew, and unfortunately they lost 10-3. So it's back to the drawing board for Brian Kelly's 2-4 squad, now facing the very real possibility of starting from scratch with a new staff in 2017. David Shaw's Cardinal team began the season with three straight victories and appeared poised to contend in the Pac-12 North, but consecutive beat-downs by Washington and Washington State have all but derailed a once promising season. But you know what always makes you feel better? Making 80,000 Catholics cry at South Bend.
