Notre Dame continues its bid for Brian Kelly’s third College Football Playoff appearance on Saturday against what is likely the Fighting Irish’s toughest test of the 2021 season thus far: No. 18 Wisconsin.
The Badgers may have suffered a season-opening loss to Penn State — a team now ranked No. 6 nationally in the AP Top 25 poll — but they managed to bounce back nicely for a 34-7 win over Eastern Michigan. The Badgers followed with a Week 3 bye to prep for No. 12 Notre Dame, a team that has yet to live up to its ranking this season.
The Fighting Irish are 3-0 this season, but none of their wins has done much to engender confidence in this team. They needed overtime and a misfire by Florida State coach Mike Norvell to beat the still winless Seminoles. They followed up a week later with a subpar performance against Toledo, needing a last-minute touchdown from quarterback Jack Coan to beat Toledo. The Irish put their “best” game together against Purdue in Week 3, but they still only won by a final score of 27-14.
Speaking of Coan, Saturday’s game vs. Wisconsin will be a homecoming of sorts for the Wisconsin transfer. He already seems like he’s on pace to match his best season for the Badgers, throwing for 828 yards and eight touchdowns to just two interceptions. He’ll need to have a big game against the Badgers’ defense, which leads the nation by allowing only 33.0 yards per game on the ground.
