Viva Las Cougars! BYU Football has a big game Saturday night when they take on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame at Allegiant Stadium.
The no. 16 Cougars rose three spots in the AP Poll after beating Utah State, 38-26 on Sept. 29 at LaVell Edwards Stadium. That win brought the Cougars to 4-1 on the season.
The Fighting Irish are 2-2 on the year. They started their season with two losses — one at Ohio State, then a more surprising one to Marshall. They won their next two games, most recently, at UNC, 45-32 on Sept. 24.
This will be the ninth time BYU and Notre Dame have met, and the first time at a neutral site. The two schools last met in 2013 in South Bend, with the Irish coming out on top, 23-13.
