Notre Dame will pay its first visit to Clemson in nearly 40 years next Saturday, and ESPN’s College GameDay will be there.
Just like the game in 1977, this one figures to have national implications. The winner could take a big step toward positioning itself for the College Football Playoff. In 1977, Joe Montana led the No. 5 Irish to a 21-17 victory over the No. 15 Tigers, a win that helped propel Notre Dame to the national championship.
