Was he in, or wasn’t he? That was the question asked last season as Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor made a dive for the goal line, which was apparently stopped by the Notre Dame defense, keeping the Irish’s undefeated season going and eventually landing them in the national title game.
On Saturday, the two will meet again in Palo Alto.
Stanford comes in to the game 9-2 and ranked eighth in the country. Following the nationally-televised loss to USC two weeks ago, the Cardinal got a bounceback win last week over the lowly Cal Golden Bears.
Notre Dame, on the other hand, while not competing for a national title like last season, are 8-3 and have some quality wins under their belt including victories over Michigan State and USC.
This, in my opinion, is one of the more underrated rivalries in college football, and should be another good one this time around.
