Why we're excited for ND @ OSU

  • Both teams are ranked as preseason top-five opponents with Ohio State at No. 2 and Notre Dame at No. 5, but the 17.5-point spread by Caesars Sportsbook is just the fourth time in the past 45 years a team has been favored by 17 or more points in an AP top-five matchup.

  • Both are among the seven college football teams that have at least a 1% chance of winning the national title, according to the Allstate Playoff Predictor.

  • The Fighting Irish have inked two consecutive top-10 classes and are not only off to a strong start to extend that streak but also contending for the nation's top class.
