After completely dismantling Idaho State at home, BYU returns to the road to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Cougars lost 17-14 in a heartbreaker in South Bend last season, and now they have a chance for revenge. A win at Notre Dame would be BYU's biggest statement of the season.

However, the Fighting Irish's power running game and stern defense will be a difficult test for BYU. Notre Dame has had two weeks to stew over its 28-21 loss to Pitt before its bye week, so the Cougars can expect the Irish to be highly motivated to get back into the wins column.

Here's a look at the matchup and what's at stake as BYU travels to Notre Dame on Saturday.
