Well, people, we are here. As of right now, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will take on the Clemson Tigers on Saturday night. For the first time since 2005, a #1 team comes into Notre Dame Stadium. The #4 Irish are ready to pounce on the Tigers, and we hope to see a more competitive game than the 2018 CFP Semifinal the last time these two teams met. The hype is and will be palpable.
Some of the hype has changed this year. The Covid-19 pandemic is still a thing, and it has affected this game in a big way.
