Following Notre Dame's bye week, the Irish head to Chicago's Solider Field, where they'll meet the Miami Hurricanes. It'll be the first matchup of these historical rivals since the Irish defeated Miami, 33-17, in the 2010 Sun Bowl.
Unfortunately, this neutral-site game won't bring nearly as much hype as the vaunted "Catholics vs. Convicts" meetings in the late 1980s and early 1990s when Jimmy Johnson was leading "The U."
Currently, former Temple head coach Al Golden is leading a Miami program that is toeing the doorstep of major violations in the wake of the Nevin Shapiro scandal. The product on the field has taken a bit of a blow as a result of that severe transgression.
In its first test against a Top 25 opponent, Miami was throttled by then 21st-ranked Kansas State, 52-13, in Manhattan.
Against a much stiffer Notre Dame defense, the Hurricanes will be lucky to tack 13 points on the scoreboard.
I'll wait to give my score prediction until next week, but an Irish victory is a certainty.
