Opponent Watch: Red October Edition

Who To Watch

Stanford at Utah (Sat 6:00pm ET Pac-12 Network)

Stanford is the highest-ranked remaining opponent for Notre Dame, so it makes sense this game would be palatable, if only you can find the Pac-12 Network on your cable subscription. The Cardinal look vulnerable at times but look to maintain their unblemished record in Salt Lake City. If you need a little Thursday Night MACtion schadenfreude, watch Rich Rodriguez match up with the ghost of Lane Kiffin.
