The Yankees of college football, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, will be facing off against the Rutgers Scarlett Knights in Yankee Stadium on Saturday, December 28.
This game includes plenty of talent on both teams, some of which could be playing in the future on Sundays.
One aspect of this game to keep an eye on is how the Notre Dame offense and defense responds after losing their coordinators. Offensive coordinator Chuck Martin recently accepted a head coaching job at Miami (OH), while defensive coordinator Bob Diaco will be taking over the reins at the University of Connecticut.
Let’s take a deeper look at the matchups that will make or break the result for each team.
