Kirby Smart says home crowd will have impact on Georgia-Notre Dame showdown
Georgia will host Notre Dame in what is expected to be the biggest college football game of the week. It could be for the entire regular season too.
The Fighting Irish earned their first trip to the College Football Playoffs last year, and the Bulldogs did the same the prior season. Both are hoping to get back there this December, and this matchup will go a long way towards creating the playoff picture.
On Wednesday, Georgia coach Kirby Smart sounded glad this epic showdown is in Athens.
Smart was very complimentary of the Notre Dame offense too, saying “it’s hard to prepare for all” the things the Irish can do on offense, especially quarterback Ian Book’s ability to scramble.
Georgia and Notre Dame played two years ago in South Bend in what was Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm’s first start. Georgia won a classic battle, 20-19.
