Notre Dame HC Marcus Freeman sounds off on matchup against Clemson

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are set to take on the Clemson Tigers on Saturday night at home. Freeman has led Notre Dame to a 5-3 record. They have turned things around, since starting the season 0-2.

Clemson is off to an 8-0 start. They are currently first in the ACC and ranked fifth in the AP Poll.

Freeman understands that his team will have their hands full with Clemson. But his latest comments prove that he isn’t willing to back down, and his expectations have not changed for this Notre Dame team.

Marcus Freeman Via Notre Dame Football: This is not a David vs Goliath. This is a heavyweight fight, and we got a dang good football team. I’ve always said it, man, we do exactly what we’re supposed to do, we’re a good enough football team to win every game we play. But, you know what? We have to do that because we’ve seen that if we don’t execute if we don’t do our job, we’re not going to be victorious.

This is Notre Dame vs Clemson, two powerhouses, two blue blood programs that are going to go battle Saturday night here in Notre Dame stadium.

Notre Dame is coming off a big win against a Syracuse team that has defied expectations this season. This should be a big battle on Saturday night.
