Yes, we have indeed been waiting such a long time. On Saturday, it will have been a full three weeks since the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will have played any football that counts. Of course we all know there was the Covid outbreak, postponing the Wake Forest game until December. This past Saturday was already your regularly-scheduled bye week for this abridged 2020 season. Now, after 21 days, it will be time for football when the Irish take on the Florida State Seminoles in Notre Dame Stadium.
A benefit to the changed schedule is that the Irish were not going to play FSU this season, but now they are to re-hash the old rivalry.
