The two biggest games this weekend have Virginia traveling to play Notre Dame and Nebraska hosting Ohio State.
UVA is undefeated in the ACC, while the Irish are coming off their first loss of the season against Georgia last week. Things should be bonkers in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday night when the Huskers take on the Buckeyes under the lights in a huge Big Ten test for both teams.
Here’s what cord cutters need to know to watch No. 10 Notre Dame vs. No. 18 Virginia and No. 5 Ohio State vs. Nebraska on Saturday.
