At the beginning of the season, it was difficult to imagine that the October 27th matchup between the Sooners and the Irish would be the headline game of the weekend. Sure, it is a matchup of two of the most storied College Football teams in the country. Sure, Oklahoma started out in the top-5 of the AP and Coaches Polls. But it is the upstart Irish which have elevated this game to National prominence and given ESPN Game Day the motivation (excuse?) to bring their show to Norman, OK for the seventh time next Saturday. On a day that will see three games featuring teams ranked in the top-11 of the BCS standings, the Sooners vs. the Irish is the most delicious of the matchups. And all the attention is despite the fact that neither team is likely to win any kind of Championship this season.

Notre Dame football enters what most consider to be the biggest test of its 2012 BCS legitimacy on Saturday at 8:00 pm as the Fighting Irish take on #8 Oklahoma at Norman.
This will Notre Dame’s first contest against Oklahoma since 1999 and it’s first in Norman since 1968. The Irish don’t have a long, drawn out historical rivalry with the Sooners like they do against USC, Michigan...
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will visit Norman, OK this weekend. Awaiting the Irish will be the Oklahoma Sooners. The Sooners are a double digit favorite and for good reason, Oklahoma has lost four games in fourteen years at home since Bob Stoops took over the coach reigns.
Few think Notre Dame have a chance against the Sooners. The better question may be how much better is Oklahoma...
YOU THINK I HAVE TIME TO WRITE A RAPID REACTION??? I'M HEADING TO THE BARS!!!!
We watched Everett Golson grow before our eyes. He also grew before a defense that just doesn't like to let teams score. NOTE: That defense is his own.
What was that Oklahoma fan?? The hold penalty would have counted for 17 points in Oklahoma's favor?? Ok bro. That Te'o interception...

The College Gameday bus rolls into Norman today for the first time since 2008. That year, the one-loss Sooners were facing an undefeated and Top 5 Texas Tech team that had knocked off Texas and Oklahoma State in back to back weeks. The Sooners won 65-21 and began their drive to the National Championship Game. Could we see a repeat this season as the undefeated Irish roll into town...
Landry Jones and No. 8 Oklahoma couldn't have been on a much bigger roll offensively, right up until they ran into Notre Dame's defense.

The Line: OU -10.5
Hard to quantify how big a game this is for Oklahoma. Win this game, and OU puts itself squarely into the conversation about the best one-loss football team in the country and creates massive momentum for a long stretch run in November with only two...
