    Everything you need to know about the Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.


    The No. 5 Notre Dame Irish will travel to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Panthers in a Saturday matinee game.

    The Fighting Irish (7-1) kept its College Football Playoff hopes alive after surviving against Temple last week. Notre Dame faced quite a scare as the Owls led 20-17 late in the fourth quarter, but quarterback DeShone Kizer hit Will Fuller for a 17-yard touchdown pass to seal the victory for the Irish. Kizer had a solid performance for Notre Dame amassing 442 yards of total offense (299 passing, 143 rushing) and 3 total touchdowns. Kizer’s 143 yards on the ground were just a three yards shy of the Notre Dame record for rushing yards by a QB. The win marked the 32nd game decided by a touchdown in which the Irish have participated under Brian Kelly. The Irish improved to 20-12 in those games.

    The Panthers (6-2, 4-1 ACC) are looking to bounce back after dropping a 26-19 contest to North Carolina last week. The Pittsburgh defense did its best to contain Marquise Williams, but the offense couldn’t get enough going to win the game. Nathan Peterman finished with a modest line (27-42, 262 yards, TD), but the Panthers faced such a big defecit early and got away from what they wanted to do: run the ball. That situation led to little work for running back Qadree Ellison, who got just 10 carries for 54 yards, but he was able to find the end zone once.

    Notre Dame and Pittsburgh will get together for the 70th time on Saturday in a series that dates back to 1909. The Fighting Irish leads the all-time series 47-21-1 and has taken three of the last four match-ups.

    Prediction

    The Irish are the more complete football team, as well as battle-tested after facing Clemson, USC and Temple in just the last month. The Panthers will have a hard time reaching the end zone on Brian VanGorder’s defense. And on offense, the maturation of Kizer as a playmaking passer and runner will continue as Notre Dame remains in the thick of the playoff hunt.
