When a high school football player verbally commits to play his collegiate ball at a certain school, that doesn’t just mean that all of the others that were in pursuit of his services suddenly are just going to back off. Take for example USC commit Daelin Hayes, a four-star linebacker recruit who announced back in July that he’d be playing for the Trojans in 2016. Monday, Hayes...

So far in 2014, the Fighting Irish have played a variety of teams that have yet to test the Irish and offer some form of glimpse or idea as to exactly how good they might be.Michigan was supposed to be a loss and early on, the toughest of the first 3 games in 2014. A blowout victory didn't prove much considering a week later the Boilermakers gave the Irish a greater test-if only...
NBC earned its lowest primetime Notre Dame rating in three years last weekend. The Purdue/Notre Dame college football game drew a 1.9 final rating and 3.1 million viewers on NBC last Saturday night, down 27% in ratings and 20% in viewership from Oklahoma/Notre Dame in the afternoon last year (2.6, 3.9M) and down 14% and [...]
Final television ratings were fairly unimpressive of ABC’s college football tripleheader last weekend. The Tennessee/Oklahoma Saturday Night Football game drew a 2.2 final rating and 3.8 million viewers on ABC, down 27% in ratings and 22% in viewership from Notre Dame/Purdue last year (3.0, 4.8M) and down 21% and 24%, respectively, from Notre Dame/Michigan State [...]
Notre Dame solidifies the third place spot again on the TiqIQ Top 25 after experiencing no change in secondary market average price at Notre Dame Stadium over the last week. The season average for Notre Dame football tickets at home remains at $216 following a win against Purdue on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Notre Dame will have a bye this week before heading East for their next...
With NC State being a potential location for ESPN's College GameDay I've decided to take a look at the weekly match-ups to see how likely it is that ESPN will end up in Raleigh. This lead me down a rabbit-hole so I'm going to take some guesses at where ESPN will end up the rest of the year.
Since the folks here at SCACCHoops.com are uber stat nerds, I've uncovered...
ESPN’s “CollegeGameday” typically doesn’t announce the location of where they’ll be broadcasting from until the week of that game. So, we likely won’t learn the destination of the Sept. 27 show until next week.
One report, though, is hinting at the idea that “GameDay” could broadcast live from New York City’s Time Square that Saturday, as Syracuse hosts Notre...

The Orange received some unexpected news Monday, when the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that Syracuse will host Notre Dame at 8 p.m. on ABC,next Saturday, at MetLife Stadium.
Syracuse has played a handful of Friday night games over the past few seasons and even a few 3:30 p.m. Saturday kickoffs against marquee opponents. However, the 8 p.m. time...
It took only three good games to get Golson’s name on the tip of every tongue for the Heisman Trophy. If only Beano Cook was still alive!
Seriously, there is a lot of football to go, but Everett Golson is making EVLIEVERS out of a lot of folks. The lead up is simple… continue to play well and win all the way up to the Florida State game. Notre Dame beats Florida State while Golson...
Though down from last year, Saturday’s primetime game between Notre Dame and Purdue held its own with competition on the other networks. The Purdue/Notre Dame college football game drew a 2.1 overnight rating on NBC Saturday night, down 25% from Oklahoma/Notre Dame in the afternoon last year (2.8) and down 13% from Miami/Notre Dame in [...]
Notre Dame escaped the sixth edition of the Shamrock Series against Purdue with a 30-14 victory. It’s a good thing Everett Golson is a magician. The Fighting Irish were riding high after that historic and gratifying 31-0 shutout over Michigan, and perhaps they used up a little more mojo than any Irish fan wanted to believe. So, it really comes as no shock that the Irish struggled...
Yes, I know it’s only been three games against average to below average competition, but Irish quarterback Everett Golson looks like the best signal caller in the nation so far during the 2014 season. For a guy who sat out all of 2013, Golson has been unbelievably sharp in games against the overmatched Owls of Rice, the always underachieving team from up north and the god awful...

2014 Notre Dame Football just got punched between the eye's.Time to respond, wake up and play to your level.Here's what we know about college football: unless your playing a non-fbs team-nothing is for sure.And as Michigan knows, even that is not gaurenteed.Against Purdue, the unexpected happened.Purdue entered Peyton's old stomping grounds looking to pull off the upset...
After the first two weeks, it’d be understandable if Purdue lifted its collective head from the wreck that is the Big Tenteen West only long enough to have it stepped on by Everett Golson and the rest of the Irish steamroller, fresh off its new “relationship” with the ACC and a great start to the season.
Fortunately, that didn’t happen. While the Boilers didn’t stay within...
The final Michigan vs Notre Dame football game was an ugly one. It was very lopsided and quite boring. However, it was still the most-streamed Notre Dame Football game of all time.
NBC Sports Live Extra’s stream of the final meeting of the iconic (although not really all that meaningful) rivalry between Michigan and Notre Dame football delivered the most-streamed Notre Dame game...
Considering the lopsided nature of the game, it should be no surprise that Michigan/Notre Dame hit a multi-year low last weekend. Last Saturday’s Michigan/Notre Dame college football game drew a 2.7 final rating and 4.6 million viewers on NBC, down 16% in ratings and 3% in viewership from Michigan State/Notre Dame in week four of [...]
Last season, Purdue went 1-11 but played hard against Notre Dame, their biggest non-conference rival. Notre Dame, despite a rough appearance against a bad opponent, went 9-4 on the season. Notre Dame has a good QB in Everett Golson back under center, they have already manhandled a rival (Michigan) in a high profile game, and they won’t take Purdue lightly this season.
Rex Pflueger, a four-star guard from Mater Dei (Calif.), verbally committed to Notre Dame Thursday evening.
The 6-foot-5 guard ranked No. 113 in the 247Sports Composite rankings for the Class of 2015 took an official visit to South Bend, Ind. last weekend and was visited this week in California by coach Mike Brey.
Pflueger announced his commitment on Twitter. He did so holding...
On Saturday the Purdue Boilermakers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish meet each other at neutral site.
No. 11 Notre Dame (2-0) is coming off a crushing win over Michigan and will be looking to make a statement against Purdue. (1-1)
Coverage of the game between Notre Dame and Purdue will air on NBC beginning at 7:30 pm ET from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.
Notre Dame landed a verbal commitment from Rex Pflueger, a 6-foot-4 guard from Santa Ana, Calif.
Pflueger is a four-star prospect, according to rivals.com.
In-state rivals will both leave their campuses on Saturday night, as Purdue takes on Notre Dame at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Boilermakers opened the season with back-to-back home games against MAC opponents. They survived 43-34 against Western Michigan. Last week was a different story, as they lost by three touchdowns to Central Michigan.
Back in 2012, his redshirt freshman season and first year as a college starter, Everett Golson was mostly a game manager and occasional running threat in the Brian Kelly offense. He had just three multi-touchdown games through the air (all coming in the last month of his season), and finished the regular season with 11 passing touchdowns, a marginally productive season on a team...
