Although you don’t necessarily have Purdue and Notre Dame penciled in as one of your must-see games in Week 2, perhaps you should.

On second thought, with an uninspiring second-week lineup, this could be one of the games everyone tunes in to. The Irish are coming off a fantastic showing in Ireland where they dominated on both sides of the ball, while Purdue backed up their buzz by dismantling Eastern Kentucky. Sure, it was Eastern Kentucky, but don’t sleep on this Purdue group.

The most fascinating aspect of this matchup might just be the way the Irish respond. A long trip home from Ireland after a big win no doubt disrupted their normal-week prep—will there be a letdown?

There are also some very intriguing matchups to look for in this game, and that ND secondary will be tested as it looks to find depth quickly.
