When the Notre Dame Fighting Irish started 10-1 last season, many thought that the team was on their way to the college football playoff semifinals but a loss to end their season followed by a loss in their bowl game ended the season with a 10-3 record and a big thud. The 2016 season brings the return of DeShone Kizer at quarterback and while there is no more C.J. Prosise in the backfield, his replacements look more than capable to replace him. A rare Sunday night game starts the season as part of just three true road games for the season. It has the potential to be another strong season for Brian Kelly and Notre Dame if they can avoid their usual roadblocks along the way.
