Ohio State head coach Ryan Day previews Notre Dame

The Ohio State football team has a big one on Saturday when it hits the road to take on fellow Midwest college football power Notre Dame.

In some ways, these two programs have paralleled each other without intersecting a whole bunch. They have met just eight times. Make no mistake though, both programs are aware of what the other is doing annually.

This year, both can turn on film, but they will also play each other in a prime-time affair on national television. OSU head coach Ryan Day knows the implications of this matchup and the challenges the Irish pose. He met with the media in Columbus during his weekly press conference to touch on that.

Watch the below video provided by the Ohio State Department of Athletics and listen to Day discuss the crossover between the two programs, the talent of the defense and quarterback Sam Hartman, the confidence he has in Kyle McCord hitting the road and much more.
