Games to Circle

3/17 vs Marquette : The Fighting Irish and Golden Eagles have faced each other a total of eight times and Notre Dame has won every single meeting. However, there have been some very close games, including consecutive one-goal contests in the 2016 and 2017 regular seasons. Marquette will be looking to come out of this matchup with a “program win” and Notre Dame will be looking to avoid any sort of upset.

4/10 & 4/22 vs/@ Duke: The Fighting Irish and Blue Devils will meet twice this season. During the last full season (2019), the two faced each other twice. Notre Dame took down Duke in the regular season, but things played out different in the NCAA tournament with Duke securing the win to advance to Championship Weekend. The quarterfinal meeting between these two went into overtime and Joe Robertson delivered the game-winner for Duke.
