ESPN's College Gameday is at Notre Dame for a college basketball game for the 2nd time ever on Saturday as the Irish welcome in Louisville for 9pm tipoff at Purcell Pavilion.
The other Gameday appearance resulted in a Notre Dame loss to UConn that snapped ND's 45-game home win streak. That defeat was part of a 7-game skid that cost the Irish a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
Fittingly, the losing streak began with an overtime loss at Louisville. It was the first of four straight OT battles between the Irish and Cardinals before Louisville won in regulation last year in the Big East Tournament.
Former Irish head coach Digger Phelps will lead the Gameday crew into town. The show airs from 10-11am on ESPNU and then 11am-noon on ESPN.
Notre Dame is ranked 24th in the country while Louisville is 11th.
