Notre Dame's #6 Theo Riddick breaks out for a good run as BYU and Notre Dame play Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012 in South Bend.

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.
