Despite Notre Dame being 2-4, they have a great chance to get back on track by hosting Stanford who has been on a downward spiral since a 3-0 start.
Their Washington loss shouldn’t have been a surprise – they were a sleeper playoff team coming into the season, while their quarterback Jake Browning is quietly stringing together a Heisman-caliber campaign. But Washington State was 2-2 heading into the game and on the road. Not only did they win, they blew out the Cardinal and effectively brought an end to Christian McCaffrey’s Heisman chances.
But Notre Dame’s season has been a disaster by all accounts. Before they could even take to the field, they had to deal with six players getting arrested. It’s all been downhill from there, as they have lost to Texas, Michigan State, NC State, and Duke. And having already fired Brian VanGorder, it’s easy to think they’re not finished cleaning house.
Having a rivalry game on national TV can go one of two ways for the Irish – a win over Stanford is still a high-profile one, and it would give the team something to rally around. A loss may be the final death knell for head coach Brian Kelly, despite the fact that it wouldn’t even be their lowest point of the season.
Like most Notre Dame games, this one will be televised on NBC. The best way to watch it online is through NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app, both of which require you to log in with your television service provider.
Despite the poor play of both these teams, Stanford vs. Notre Dame is a classic football rivalry. The big stage may make this game feel like a clash between two playoff teams, especially if it’s anything like last year’s thrilling contest.
