Household names like Matt Barkley, Landry Jones, Denard Robinson and Robert Woods are no longer around, but Notre Dame will again face some of the best individual talent in college football this fall.
We've ranked the 25 players that Notre Dame will have to play against during the 2013 season. Some of the names may be less familiar than the one in last year's list, with a drop-off in elite quarterbacks and an increase in front-seven defenders.
Unlike last year's list, which had five USC players ranked in the top 11, you'll find just one Trojan in the top 15. Stanford's five players are the most of any opponent, with nine of the Irish's 12 opponents represented at least once.
