The Arizona State Sun Devils and Notre Dame Fighting Irish both need a win in their marquee matchup in Dallas this weekend.
Arizona State rolls into Texas having put up record-setting offensive numbers against USC. Although the Sun Devils hold a 3-1 record, their defense has struggled and their run defense, in particular, has put them behind the eight ball many times. A win over the Fighting Irish would allow ASU to catch the nation's eye and show they are for real.
Notre Dame stumbles into AT&T Stadium having already lost two games this year. Just a year ago, the Irish ran the table and went to the BCS National Championship Game only to lose to Alabama. The Fighting Irish have lost both of their meetings with Top 25 teams this year and need a win over ASU to right their ship and gain their confidence back.

Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
