Going into this game, Stanford is 3-2 and Note Dame is 2-4. Yikes. This game was supposed to be a meeting between two College Football Playoff-level teams, but both squads have been disappointing at the start of the season, according to Philly.com. With the Cardinal offense falling to 118th in scoring and Notre Dame allowing 124 points in their first three losses, these teams are ready for a do-over.
“I think we have a good football team that’s trying to find its way, Davis Shaw, 44, head coach for Stanford, said ahead of this game. It’s a shame they couldn’t find a way to protect Christian McCaffrey, 20. The Heisman Trophy runner-up is questionable for this game, per College Football News, due to a leg injury. Bummer. With a hurt QB and an even more banged-up pass defense, most expect the Fighting Irish to get closer to a .500 record by scoring the win.
It will be another notch on Notre Dame’s tally in this nearly 100-year battle. In 1925, Notre Dame, under the guidance of Knute Rockne, took on Pop Warner’s squad in the Rose Bowl. Notre Dame secured the victory and their first-ever national title. They met only three other times before 1988, when they began to play each other yearly. Going into this game, Notre Dame leads the series, 19-11. Will they make it an even 20?
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Can the Cardinal squad conquer the Fighting Irish or will Notre Dame defeat their rivals?
