The Fighting Irish gear up for the Cotton Bowl Classic

ARLINGTON, Texas. – A victory at the Cotton Bowl on Saturday would move Notre Dame into a College Football National Championship game.

The Fighting Irish and the Clemson Tigers will face off at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday and ABC57 will be there to cover it.

Notre Dame faced player switch-ups and injuries in their season, but held strong to come out on top and make it to the Cotton Bowl.

Clemson faces their own challenges after learning that their defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence will not be playing due to a positive drug test for the performance enhancing drug called "ostarine".

But as 2018 draws to a close, the next goal for the Irish is to keep playing into the New Year.

"We're on a journey here, and we want to get that next step. We want a national championship,” said Notre Dame’s coach, Brian Kelly.

ABC57 will be live in Texas for all the excitement, starting with special Kickoff Coverage on Friday at 7 p.m.

Catch that coverage again when it airs at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The game starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon and ABC57 will have all your post-game coverage.
