In addition to the long-standing traditions and the huge stadiums filled with passionate, screaming fans, part of what makes college football so compelling is that each week of the season has the feel of playoff intensity — one loss can derail a team’s national championship hopes. The biggest game this weekend has the undefeated Fighting Irish of Notre Dame traveling to play the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs. The victor will be able to add a big early-season win to its playoff resume, while the loser’s playoff chances will take a huge hit.
Here’s what cord cutters need to know to watch No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 3 UGA square off in Athens, Georgia tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
