Following a Week 1 loss to the (#3) Ohio State Buckeyes, the stage is now set for the Fighting Irish to “win out” to earn a shot at the national title.
This Saturday at 2:30 pm Eastern Time, the (#8) Notre Dame Fighting Irish will host the 1-0 Marshall Thundering Herd out of Huntington, West Virginia.
Indiana online sports bettors can get the Irish as a significant three-touchdown favourite when placing real money wagers on legal statewide sportsbook apps, including PointsBet Sportsbook Indiana.
The “Over/Under” line on this Saturday’s South Bend NCAA Division I college football matchup is hovering around 51 points on local apps such as WynnBET Sportsbook IN — where new customers can receive $100 in betting credits upon making an initial real money online wager of $100 or more.
Tickets for the matchup in South Bend are currently on sale at Ticketmaster, with prices ranging from approximately $40 to $600 per seat depending on the in-stadium location (ticket prices subject to change).
Fighting Irish Have 11 Games Remaining On Regular Season Schedule
Now that Notre Dame has started the season with a record of 0-1, they will most likely be forced to win all 11 remaining games if the team wants to entertain any hopes of an NCAA Division I college football championship.
Their next game against a Top 25 ranked team is Saturday, October 8th, when they face Brigham Young University in Las Vegas donning their Shamrock Uniforms.
On November 5th, Notre Dame will host the (#4) Clemson Tigers and will end their regular season on Saturday, November 26th, against the (#10) USC Trojans in Los Angeles.
Notre Dame Remains Among Top 10 Teams In College Football
The Fighting Irish dropped three spots to (#8) in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 Poll as a result of their 21-10 defeat in Columbus over the weekend.
Due to the “respectable loss” the Fighting Irish suffered this past Saturday at The Horseshoe, a potential postseason run at the national title remains feasible (as long as the ‘Gold and Blue’ win from here on out).
Ironically, Ohio State likewise fell one spot down to (#3) despite their Week 1 victory. This was due mostly to the extremely strong performance put up by the now (#2) Georgia Bulldogs in their 49-3 massacre over the (now unranked) Oregon Ducks.
The Alabama Crimson Tide – to the surprise of no one – are still ranked the #1 college football team in the country after they took care of business against Utah State 55-0. Alabama’s next opponent this Saturday is the University of Texas in Austin.
Purdue Vs. Indiana State This Saturday At 4PM Eastern
The Purdue Boilermakers nearly upset the Penn State Nittany Lions last week but ended their first game of the season on the losing end of a 35-31 battle.
This week, Purdue plays its second consecutive game at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette as they host the Indiana State Sycamores. Indiana State won last week in overtime against North Alabama by a score of 17-14 in Terre Haute.
“Matty Ice” To Make Colts Regular Season Debut In Houston
