Coming off a thrilling 54-48 overtime victory over Arizona last week, No. 17 Stanford (4-1, 2-1 Pac-12) will try to claim its first road victory when it squares off against No. 7 Notre Dame (5-0) in South Bend, Ind., tomorrow afternoon.
Notre Dame football
At any level of football, attrition is the story of every team’s season. Players get hurt. Coaches agonize over position battles. Fans speculate about who will fill the voids left by others…. But for the Cardinal, sometimes it’s not a problem of talent but a problem of economics–supply doesn’t meet demand–and that means a player has to change positions in order to make a necessary difference for a team that’s in contention for a national championship.
On Monday evening, the Pac-12 announced that the outcome of Saturday’s football matchup between Stanford and Oregon will determine both the start time and television scenario for the 114th Big Game on Nov. 19. Win or loss, however, the Cardinal will play in front of a national television audience.
If there is one thing you can always count on, it’s the innate ability of human beings to do stupid things. When football is involved, go ahead and take that stupidity to the next level.
