Notre Dame and Texas face off to open their respective seasons in a Sunday night matchup in Austin.

The Fighting Irish enter ranked No. 10 to start the season. Texas faces a big year under head coach Charlie Strong, looking to turn the program around after a string of down years. The Longhorns have not won double-digit games since 2009.

DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire will split time for Notre Dame at quarterback. The Irish will be strongly favored, and routed Texas 38–3 almost exactly one year ago.
