Notre Dame at Miami Hurricanes: Game Info and Live Streaming

SOUTH BEND, IN - OCTOBER 29: Josh Adams /

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish travel to South Florida to play at the Miami Hurricanes for the first time in 28 years. The renewal of the rivalry with a potential berth in the College Football Playoff on the line has college football buzzing.

Notre Dame enters the game 8-1 and ranked third in the country. Their only loss this season was to the top-ranked team in the College Football Playoff ranking, Georgia. The Miami Hurricanes are 8-0 and ranked seventh.

Miami has gotten a lot of criticism this season for winning their four October games by an average of 4.5 points per game. They made their statement last week with the calendar turning to November. The Hurricanes dominated number 13 Virginia Tech 28-10.

Notre Dame brings the nation’s fifth-best rushing offense to Hard Rock Stadium. The Fighting Irish enter the game averaging 324.8 yards per game on the ground. Quarterback Brandon Wimbush and running back Josh Adams are both a threat running the football.

Adams is ninth in the country averaging 132.3 yards per game. Wimbush adds an average of 71 yards per game on the ground.

There has been a lot of conversation about if and when the U is back. Being on the ABC Saturday Night Football two weeks in a row certainly has them on the way.

While the Hurricanes can be affected by the weather, they have the added advantage of practicing in the conditions and getting their bodies used to it. Kelly said that the heat should not be an issue for his hydrated team.
