Stanford arrives in South Bend in upset mode as they try to win their fourth consecutive game against Notre Dame. Last weekend, the Cardinal bounced back from their only loss of the season at Washington to win a wild one over Arizona 54-48. Running back Stepfan Taylor rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns, pushing the senior's rushing total to 555 yards through five games. Dynamic senior wide receiver and kick returner Ty Montgomery is doubtful with a knee injury for Stanford.
Notre Dame returns home after blowing out Miami (FL) 41-3 on the "road" in front of a friendly crowd at Soldier Field in Chicago. Quarterback Everett Golson came off the bench to guide the Irish to 587 yards of offense, including 376 yards rushing.
