Week 3 of the college football season didn't have the most enticing matchups on paper, but the games still delivered exciting results and upset wins. But for the past two weeks, the attention has been on the Week 4 slate, which is quite honestly stacked with gigantic matchups. One of the big games will be on Saturday night when the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes visit the No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame is rolling to start the year, as they have seemingly put their quarterback concerns dating back to last season to rest by getting Sam Hartman from the transfer portal. Thus far, the team is 4-0 on the year and cruising to easy victories.

As for Ohio State, they aren't the unstoppable powerhouse offensively as they were last year. There have been complaints from the Buckeyes side about the new first down clock rule that opponents are using against them, hence the lack of a ridiculous amount of points being scored as they have in the past. However, they did drop 63 points against Western Kentucky last week.

With this big matchup, fans are probably curious about which team has gotten the most wins head-to-head. We have all of that information for you below.
