This portion of the week often includes some big-picture synopsis of the ACC. Let’s not pretend. No. 4 Notre Dame (6-0, 5-0 ACC) hosts No. 1 Clemson (7-0, 6-0) tomorrow night (7:30 ET; NBC). There is not enough bandwidth to fret over Pittsburgh at Florida State or Boston College at Syracuse.
There is only one thing that matters, to pull from Irish head coach Brian Kelly’s press conference on Monday.
“Really all that matters is that we get an opportunity to play Clemson this Saturday and compete against them, and who knows, it might not be the only time we play them this year,” he said.
