Notre Dame played beforeand will play after St. Patrick's Day, which is a bit disappointing for fans of the Fighting Irish.
When asked about the holiday, coach Mike Brey made a joking comment about the fanbase.
"I hope our fans can get out of jail by 8 a.m.tomorrow and get to our game because I know they're going to be rolling today. You know how those Irish fans are."
Fans do tend to get bit rowdy during the beer-filled holiday, but the fans visiting Buffalo will surely behave themselves for the early matchup.
