Notre Dame uses St. Patrick’s Day to announce green uniforms for Ohio State game
On Friday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish announced they would be wearing their green of choice on September 23 against the Ohio State Buckeyes. Why announce a football kit combination more than six months before the start of the football season? Because Friday is St. Patrick’s Day. Irish… green… St. Paddy’s… got it?
The match between the Irish and the Buckeyes is one of the most anticipated games at the beginning of the season. Notre Dame hosts Ohio State in South Bend after visiting Columbus to open the 2022 season. The Buckeyes won that game 21-10. This was part of a rocky start for Notre Dame, who lost to Marshall the following week.
The 2023 game will be slightly different from the first game of the 2022 season. Ohio State will be without several big stars in this game. Quarterback CJ Stroud, forward Paris Johnson Jr. and wide receiver Jackson Smith-Njigba are expected to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in Todd McShay’s last tryout draft.
The Irishman signed Wake Forest Demon Deacons quarterback Sam Hartman in what was one of the best transfers of the off-season. And now they will be in green.
Irish clothes in green.
Today and September 23 ☘️
