Week 1 of the 2022 college football season will feature a primetime top-five showdown.
The No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will visit the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes for a heavyweight clash at the Horseshoe this weekend.
Ohio State was slotted behind No. 1 Alabama in the preseason AP poll following an 11-2 2021 campaign that was capped by a Rose Bowl victory over Utah. With Heisman Trophy favorite C.J. Stroud entering his second season as the starter under center, the Buckeyes have a strong chance to capture their first national championship since 2014.
Notre Dame, meanwhile, earned its highest preseason ranking since 2006 after going 11-2 and falling to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl last season. The Fighting Irish are heading into a new era with a first-time head coach in Marcus Freeman and a first-time starting quarterback in sophomore Tyler Buchner. But, despite the departures of former head coach Brian Kelly and four-year starting QB Ian Book, expectations are clearly still high for Notre Dame in 2022.
