Notre Dame

Notre Dame’s defense was commendable last year, but their challenges and defeats often stemmed from a lack of offensive support. They needed a quarterback who could expand the field, a void filled by Sam Hartman. After two stellar seasons at Wake Forest, where he totaled 7,929 passing yards and 77 touchdowns—second only to CJ Stroud in the FBS—Hartman has staked his claim in South Bend. In a game against Navy overseas, he revitalized the Fighting Irish’s passing game, completing 19 of 23 passes for 251 yards and four touchdowns.

Ohio State

Ohio State is ushering in a new era with star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba and quarterback C.J. Stroud moving on to the NFL. The successor to Stroud remains uncertain. Head coach Ryan Day mentioned that the competition is neck-and-neck, and consequently, both Kyle McCord and Devin Brown will alternate snaps. 


Last year, Ohio State rallied in the second half to clinch a win in this matchup, but with newcomers in pivotal roles, this encounter promises to be different. The Buckeyes face the daunting challenge of two novice quarterbacks trying to navigate one of the nation’s top defenses. South Bend is expected to be roaring for this game, and the prediction leans toward a significant win for the Irish.
