Congrats to my cousin on her upcoming wedding tonight. And please, Notre Dame, no news this weekend.
- Former Texas quarterback Connor Brewer said that Alabama, Notre Dame, Stanford, Louisville, UCLA, Arizona and Tennessee have reached out to express interest in him transferring, colleague Joe Schad reports.
- Colleague David Ubben goes ahead and predicts the Week 5 Big 12 slate, including Oklahoma-Notre Dame. (Last July he picked the Sooners to win last October's contest with the Irish by a 44-24 score, so let's not get too excited just yet here.)
- Pac-12 blogger Kevin Gemmell has a number of Notre Dame-related items: First, he says the USC-Irish matchup is the best in the conference in Week 8. Then, he hosts a poll looking at the best nonconference game in the North division, with Notre Dame-Stanford among the options. And lastly, he holds the same poll for the South division, with the Trojans-Irish tilt as an option.
- The Lansing State Journal's Graham Couch takes an early look at this year's Michigan State-Notre Dame game.
- Unrelated to anything, but you have to laugh at Menelik Watson's ACC championship ring mix-up. Insert S-E-C joke here.
