SOUTH BEND, IND. (AP) - Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is expecting another physical game when No. 17 Stanford visits the undefeated Irish on Saturday.

After watching his team get pushed around by the Cardinal (4-1) the past two seasons, Kelly says he is expecting a backyard brawl-style game. The Cardinal had never won two straight in the long-running series against the Irish (5-0) until taking the last three games, including Notre Dame’s most lopsided loss under Kelly two years ago.

This will be Stanford’s second road game of the season, following a 17-13 loss at Washington on Sept. 27. The Cardinal are just 3-10 all-time at Notre Dame Stadium.

Stanford coach David Shaw says the challenge for the Cardinal is to play their best game on the road.
