Buckeyes vs. Notre Dame Jan. 2

The Fiesta Bowl should be a very good game. Ohio State’s great defense versus Notre Dame’s great offense.

This will be the fifth time the Fighting Irish and Buckeyes have met, the first time at a neutral site or in a bowl. Notre Dame won the first two meetings, 18-13 in 1935 in what many historians have referred to as one of the greatest college games ever. The Fighting Irish also won a year later, 7-2.

Aside from being in the national championship game, this is probably the best way to end a good year for the Buckeyes. It’ll be a real test…the Irish sometimes seem able to score at will. But they’ve never seen a defense like Ohio State’s.
