Oklahoma Travels To South Bend Looking For Revenge

The Oklahoma Sooners are 3-0 and have looked very good defensively in the early part of the 2013 season. Last season, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish stunned the Sooners in Norman with a convincing 3-13 victory. The Irish are 3-1 and have lacked lackluster in their 4 games this season. If the Sooners can pull out the victory in South Bend, they can gain momentum before their Big 12 season begins in October. This a great game between two storied programs.
