Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly spoke for the final time Thursday before the fourth-ranked Irish host No. 1 Clemson Saturday night at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend.
This is just the second time in the Kelly era the Irish have hosted a game of this magnitude. The last time they did, they routed a top 10 Stanford team.
“We haven’t had many of these opportunities at home. This is the second time we’ve played a top 10 team at home. The last time we did, we took it to Stanford pretty good.
