Michigan State Spartans
Kansas State Wildcats
No. 5 Notre Dame (7-0) at No. 8 Oklahoma (5-1)
Owen Field (Norman, Okla.)
Oct. 27, 7:15 p.m.
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 home games.
Notre Dame is something of an enigma this year, winning games in the same manner that they lost games last year. Big early wins came over teams that look pretty average this year in Michigan and Michigan State.
OU has faced a similar team to ND in Kansas State (although ND does not have a QB anywhere near as good/experienced as Collin Klein), but ND has not faced anyone who has a QB as talented/experienced in the passing game as Landry Jones.
This seems like a classic matchup of strength versus strength. Keep an eye on...

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...
Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly said that Everett Golson will be the starting quarterback when his team hits the road for their biggest game of the 2012 NCAA Football season against the Oklahoma Sooners. He has been 100 percent cleared from any concussion symptoms he suffered two weeks ago in a big home victory over the Stanford Cardinal and will start this Saturday...
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...

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 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...
The words ''Play Like a Champion Today'' are plastered on the walls leading from the locker room to the field at both No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 8 Oklahoma, a rich piece of tradition the storied schools happen to share.
Come Saturday night, a rare meeting between the programs will test the championship mettle for both the Fighting Irish (7-0) and the Sooners (5-1)...
We double dip the podcast today folks and we're kicking your morning off with this Notre Dame preview. The Fighting Irish are undefeated and headed out to Norman to take on the eighth ranked Sooners. So, of course, we have longtime friend of the program, The Subway Domer, on the show. Make sure you check him out over at Subway Domer.This is a big game and we waste no time on...
