Saturday marks the first top-5 game at Notre Dame Stadium in more than 20 years and with Clemson as their opponent, it will be the first #1 team the Irish have faced since their 2005 match-up against USC.
The Irish are 6-0 for the fourth time under Brian Kelly (2012, 2014, 2018) and in two of those three previous times they finished with an undefeated regular season. Notre Dame is coming off a 31-13 win at Georgia Tech last weekend. QB Ian Book completed 18-of-26 passes for 199 yards with a touchdown. The fifth year quarterback has never lost at Notre Dame Stadium, going 13-0 with a total of 38 touchdowns and 5 interceptions in his career at home. Book has led the Irish to 12 consecutive victories – the longest active streak in the country.
Clemson enters this weekend with a 36-game regular season win streak and has won its last 28 games against ACC opponents. The Tigers last lost a regular-season game in 2017, when they fell 27-24 at Syracuse.
