Notre Dame-Ohio State headlines college football Week 1

Last Saturday was a tease for college football fans. The first week of the CFB season, known as Week 0, featured 11 games with unranked opponents. And the headliner of the day was Northwestern vs. Nebraska in Dublin, Ireland.

While many fans were happy to have football back, they’re also excited to see the top teams in the nation play this weekend.

There are three matchups where both teams are ranked in the AP Top 25 poll. Saturday night’s primetime showdown between No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 2 Ohio State is the only matchup where two teams ranked in the top five face off.

Notre Dame is listed as a 17.5-point underdog on DraftKings Sportsbook, which is rather lofty for a team ranked fifth in the nation. But Ohio State will has home-field advantage on Saturday night, and many are picking the Buckeyes to win the College Football Playoff National Championship at season’s end.

Breaking down No. 5 Notre Dame vs. No. 2 Ohio State

Ohio State returns star QB CJ Stroud, a frontrunner to win the Heisman Trophy. Stroud had the fifth-most passing yards and the third-most passing touchdowns in FBS last season. His favorite target from 2021, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, is back with the team for his junior season. Smith-Njigba had the third-most receiving yards in the nation last year.

Notre Dame was well-rounded in 2021, averaging 35 points per game while ranking 15th in scoring defense. But the Fighting Irish lost QB Jack Coan, RB Kyren Williams and safety Kyle Hamilton to the NFL. The biggest departure was coach Brian Kelly, who joined LSU after 12 seasons in South Bend.

With Notre Dame in the midst of a transitional period where there are new faces all over the depth chart and rookie coach Marcus Freeman at the helm, look for Stroud and the Buckeyes to dominate and cover the 17.5-point spread on home turf.
