2012 could be a great year for Notre Dame. But due to the difficulty of their schedule, it could also be a season faced with a lot of hardship.
With this extremely tough schedule, Notre Dame is playing some great teams. Here’s the 3 games I am looking forward to the most.
3. vs Nay (in Dublin, Ireland) – Sept. 1, 2012
How many times does a college football game go overseas? Not very often, at all. It’s very fitting that the Fighting Irish are playing in the capital of Ireland. I’m just excited to wake up in the morning to a cup of coffee, some pancakes, and Notre Dame football (since the gametime is 9am ET). This is also a game where Notre Dame can win easily, if they show up and play. Starting the season off 1-0 would be nice, instead of a 23-20 loss to USF like in 2011.
2. at Oklahoma – Oct. 27, 2012
I don’t know what to say. This game gets me fired up on all cylinders. Notre Dame against a Big 12 opponent, potentially the ESPN GameDay crew at the game, top 25 opponent- all are reason to be pumped for this game. This game is one I want Notre Dame to win very badly, mainly because it would show the world that Notre Dame is in fact, back in the college football world.
