3rd Quarter Report
Notre Dame already has more points against Stanford than they managed in total against Wake Forest last Saturday. After three quarters Notre Dame's offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Stanford 49-16. This contest looks nothing like the tight 16-14 margin from Notre Dame's win over Stanford in their previous head-to-head back in October of 2022.
Notre Dame already has seven blowout wins this season, but why stop there? Barring a freak comeback, they will be celebrating another huge victory in the locker room very soon.

They will look to defend their home field on Saturday against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 7:00 p.m. ET at Stanford Stadium. Stanford is out to stop a eight-game streak of losses at home dating back to last season.

The losing side was boosted by Ashton Daniels, who threw for 188 yards and a touchdown. Joshua Karty did his part by putting the 'special' in special teams, booting in three field goals.
Meanwhile, Notre Dame can now show off seven landslide victories after their most recent matchup on Saturday. They claimed a resounding 45-7 victory over Wake Forest at home. The margin was wide but not a surprise since the spread was 24 in Notre Dame's favor.
