In the biggest marquee matchup of the first week of college football, No. 5-ranked Notre Dame is taking on No. 2-ranked Ohio State at the Horseshoe on Saturday night. Ohio State is favored by over two touchdowns, but Notre Dame is not going to be an easy victory. In fact, Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman said that point spread is just more motivation for his team.

“I’m going to write that down. You said 17 and a half points, right? We’ll use that in the team meeting today,” Freeman joked in his pre-game press conference. “It’s good to know. I haven’t paid much attention to the spread, but I remember that one time we were on College Gameday I said just keep making it go up and up.”

He also said in an interview with ESPN, “You have to build confidence into these young people. It can’t be the end of the world when they make a mistake … then what you do is you gotta truly build it in practice. You gotta make it so hard in practice, so difficult in practice that when they go out in a game, they have the utmost confidence.”

“I think for us, as a leader you always look for opportunities to motivate your guys to practice. There won’t be a lack of motivation for this game,” added Freeman.

In his own press conference, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said he’s excited for the historical significance of the game. These two teams have not met in a regular season matchup since 1996.

Day said (via Sports Illustrated):

When you think about what an opportunity this is for Saturday night, just getting Notre Dame and Ohio State together, first game of the year, 100th year anniversary of The Shoe, all of the things combined,” Day began. “What a great opportunity, and that’s what college football is all about is bringing people back and making it special.

This is about our players. I talked to them the other day about when you grow up and you’re seven, eight, nine, 10 years old, and you watch a game on TV on Saturday night and then you wake up the next morning on Sunday and you’re playing in the back yard, and all of a sudden you’re taking on the personality of the guys who you watched the night before,” Day continued. “You could see a couple of them nod and I said ‘Well, that’s going to be you’. I try to remind guys that every year when we play in environments like this. That’s the opportunity that’s there. That’s why we’ve got to work so hard this week to be at competitive excellence on Saturday. (We are) working really hard to make sure that we’re prepared for this thing.

The Notre Dame at Ohio State game kicks off Saturday, September 3 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
