No. 10 Notre Dame at Texas


7:30 p.m. Sun­day, ABC The buzz: This is the first time the Ir­ish have opened with a true road game since 2006, when they beat Ge­or­gia Tech 14-10 in Atlanta. The Longhorns, mean­while, are look­ing for their first non­con­fer­ence vic­tory over a Power Five team un­der Char­lie Strong (0-4) and their sec­ond win in four chances against a top-10 team (they beat Ok­la­homa 24-17 last year). mmurschel@or­lan­dosen­

The buzz: There will be no frozen tun­dra, with tem­per­a­tures in Green Bay ex­pected to be in the mid-70s by kick­off, but Lam­beau Field will pro­vide a unique set­ting. Leonard Four­nette comes in banged up; the Tigers RB av­er­aged more than 150 yards against Power Five teams last sea­son. The Bad­gers, mean­while, led the Big Ten in rush­ing de­fense (95.4 ypg).
