Days until game: 10


Notre Dame will play at the site of ESPN’s “GameDay” pregame show for a fourth time this year when the No. 1 Irish (12-0) take on No. 2 Alabama (12-1) in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.

There will be two guest analysts working with ESPN’s Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard.

Former ESPN analyst and current Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin will join the crew for the championship game.

The Irish played at the “GameDay” site when they played Stanford, Oklahoma and USC this season.
