CHICAGO - These are the games that fans of the Fighting Irish dream of when a season begins. The fact that it happens in November against Miami makes it even better.
The rivalry -which reached its heights in the late 1980's and early 1990's - has been rekindled a bit over the last few years and has it's first signature showdown this weekend.
Notre Dame, ranked third in the College Football Playoff poll, will faced Miami, ranked seventh in the same poll, play Saturday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. The winner stays alive for a chance at one of the four playoff spots in the biggest game of the year for both teams so far.
