Updated results with final scores will be added throughout the season. Saturday, Nov. Navy Midshipmen Notre Dame, Ind. Week 1 — Sept. Last year was a nightmare for the Louisville football program as the team finished Bobby Petrino is now out and Scott Satterfield takes the reins as the Cardinals' head coach.
First and foremost, Louisville needs much better quarterback play, whether that be from returning starter Jawon Pass or from someone else.
Week 3 — Sept. New Mexico Notre Dame, Ind. On Dec. Or so everyone thought. After consecutive bowl appearances in and '16, New Mexico has had two seasons, which coupled with some off-the-field distractions makes an important season for the former Notre Dame coach.
Week 4 — Sept. In what will be one of the most anticipated games of the season, the Irish will venture to Sanford Stadium for the first time ever and will play a Georgia team that will be in everyone's top 5.
The Bulldogs lost a ton of talent from last year's Sugar Bowl team, but Kirby Smart has recruited exceptionally well and Jake Fromm is back at quarterback. Week 5 — Sept.
Virginia Notre Dame, Ind. Week 6 — Oct.
Bowling Green Notre Dame, Ind. Veteran — and often maligned — offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler takes over as the head coach at Bowling Green, a program that has gone since Dino Babers left for Syracuse following the season.
Interestingly, Loeffler hired an equally maligned defensive mind — former Notre Dame coordinator Brian Van Gorder — as his associate head coach.
Week 7 — Oct. It's an odd-numbered year, so that means that the Trojans come to Notre Dame in mid-October. Clay Helton survived a disappointing campaign, but as a result, his seat will be as hot as any entering Helton looks like he may have something to work with in rising sophomore quarterback JT Daniels, but USC must improve their th-ranked rushing offense.
Week 9 — Oct.
Michigan football needed better start at Penn State; what to watch vs. Their fate no longer belongs in their hands.
Well, it was fun while it lasted. The brief two-game series between the Irish and Wolverines wraps up this season and the two iconic programs have no future dates planned.
Jim Harbaugh's crew is looking to avenge last year's season-opening loss to the Irish and will have to do so without defensive stars Devin Bush, Rashan Gary, and Chase Winovich. Week 10 — Nov.
Virginia Tech Notre Dame, Ind. Notre Dame will play the Hokies for the second year in a row and for the third time in four years. Virginia Tech had a tumultuous , finishing , and the offseason has been just as unsettled.
But Justin Fuente has some big-play weapons at wide receiver and the defense returns a lot of experience. Week 11 — Nov.
That was back in , a game that Duke won Duke's other victory in the five meetings between the two schools was a win during ND's miserable season. Week 12 — Nov. Navy Notre Dame, Ind. Things have been sliding in the wrong direction for Navy in recent years. Most importantly, the three straight losses to Army don't sit well in Annapolis.
Plus, the Midshipmen missed a bowl game for only the second time in 16 years after going last fall. One of those losses was a drubbing by Notre Dame in San Diego. Week 13 — Nov. Boston College Notre Dame, Ind.
The bad news is that much of the defensive production has now moved on and head coach Steve Addazio will need more from an offense led by star running back AJ Dillon.
Week 14 — Nov. The Cardinal offense is solid at quarterback with K. Costello coming off a 3,yard, touchdown season.
On defense, head coach David Shaw will need to do some re-tooling, especially at linebacker and in the secondary.
