Notre Dame is two weeks away from playing Clemson in the Cotton Bowl with a trip to the National Championship on the line. With finals complete and kickoff finally drawing near, the team is excited to take on the Tigers.

"Now that finals are out of the way and everything, everyone's just locked in and really ready to go," Irish junior quarterback Ian Book said. "This team's confident, like we should be. We're two weeks away from the biggest game of our lives, there's really nothing else to say. Everyone's just extremely excited."

Notre Dame will practice this upcoming week until Thursday, Dec. 20th when they will go home to their families for a few days. The team will fly to Dallas on Dec. 23rd, all leading up to the Cotton Bowl clash with Clemson on the 29th.
