What to Know
If the oddsmakers' predictions hold true, the near future looks bright for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Notre Dame and the Louisville Cardinals will face off in an ACC battle at 2:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium. The Fighting Irish are cruising in on a three-game winning streak while U of L is stumbling in off of three consecutive losses.
Notre Dame didn't have too much trouble with the Florida State Seminoles at home last week as they won 42-26. RB Kyren Williams had a stellar game for Notre Dame as he rushed for two TDs and 185 yards on 19 carries. Williams' longest run was for 65 yards in the first quarter.
Meanwhile, the game between U of L and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last Friday was not a total blowout, but with the Cardinals falling 46-27 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. QB Macale Cunningham put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for two TDs and 229 yards on 33 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 50 yards.
The Fighting Irish are now a perfect 3-0 while U of L sits at 1-3. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Notre Dame has yet to allow a single passing touchdown. But the Cardinals come into the contest boasting the seventh most passing touchdowns in the nation at nine. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
