Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. BYU Cougars: Complete Game Preview

Neither Notre Dame nor BYU faced much resistance last week. The Irish spent an off week licking their wounds and wondering how they let their BCS hopes slip away against Pittsburgh. BYU coasted past Idaho State 59-13 on Senior Day at LaVell Edwards Stadium. 

Both teams enter Notre Dame Stadium with something to prove. For the Cougars, it'll be exacting revenge after nearly ending the Irish's undefeated 2012 in mid-October. For Notre Dame, it'll be sending the senior class out on a high note, with Senior Day festivities set for pre-game. 

Each team has three losses this season, with BYU already accepting a bowl invitation to the Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco at AT&T Park. While the Irish will need to wait for the dust to settle before finding out where they'll spend this postseason, a victory will go a long way toward quieting the critics that came calling after the disappointing 28-21 loss to Pitt.

Here's everything you need to know before the Irish and the Cougars face off.
