We have reached week three of the college football season which means there are a lot of non conference showdowns this weekend. In this game it’s a big showdown when the the Vanderbilt Commodores make the trip to Notre Dame Stadium to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The Fighting Irish have won the two previous matchups between the two teams but the last game played was in 1996.
The Vanderbilt Commodores are looking like a team that the rest of the league needs to watch out for because they have played two good games so far.
This game will go a long ways in determining exactly how good they can be this year but this is a team that has to feel ike they have a chance in this game.
They faced a good Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders team and the defense shut them down with ease. The defense caused all kind of havoc and allowed only seven points.
On the offensive side of the ball the Commodores have also been good coming into this game averaging 38 points per game.
They are led by quarterback Kyle Shurmur who has done a good job of keeping the ball and not turning it over. He has thrown for 428 yards and four touchdowns.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
On the other side of this matchup is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who got off to a good start with a huge win over the Michigan Wolverines but in their last game against Ball State they had some issues even though they came away with a victory.
The Fighting Irish are led by quarterback Brandon Wimbush who really hasn’t been good this year. He has already thrown four interceptions and he needs to do a better job of hanging onto the ball.
On the defensive side of the ball the Fighting Irish are a good team and that is going to need to continue on in this game.
To win this game the offense is going to need to find a way to get going. They can’t turn the ball over or they could be upset.
