Season openers in Ireland have become more and more commonplace in recent years. Last season, Nebraska and Northwestern out of the Big Ten opened their 2022 season in Ireland.
Notre Dame is looking to improve on a 9-4 record during Marcus Freeman’s first season leading the program. The offseason has provided a bit of give and take for the Irish with the team landing quarterback Sam Hartman via the transfer portal but losing OC Tommy Rees to Alabama.
