The Notre Dame Fighting Irish look to start their 2015 campaign at 3-0 as they face the visiting Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and college football fans can watch this matchup of Top 15-ranked teams live online, as Notre Dame backup quarterback DeShone Kizer gets the first start of his career after leading the Irish to a miracle come-from-behind victory over Virginia last Saturday.
The 20-year-old Kizer, normally the team’s field-goal holder, was pressed into service after starter Malik Zaire left the game with a gruesome broken ankle injury — and fired a 39-yard pass for a touchdown to Will Fuller with just 12 seconds left on the clock.
But Notre Dame, ranked Number Eight in the nation, may need to rely in its defense against the high-flying offense of 14th-ranked Georgia Tech — an offense which has put 134 points in the board in its first two games. Granted, those games came against Alcorn State, a team that plays in the Division I Championship, and Tulane who remain one of only two winless teams in the 12-team American Athletic Conference.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 12:30 p.m. Pacific, at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, on Saturday, September 19.
Notre Dame compiled its first two victories this season over more respectable competition, in Texas and Virginia.
Amazingly, Las Vegas oddsmakers have Georgia Tech favored to win the game by 2 1/2 points. But in the entire history of Georgia Tech vs. Notre Dame matchups, the Yellow Jackets have never beaten a Fighting Irish team ranked in the Top 10. But the two schools have not faced each other on the gridiron since the opening game of 2007 season, when Georgia tech won in lopsided fashion, 33-7.
Notre Dame will be looking for only their fourth 3-0 start to a season since 1996, when Lou Holtz was still the Fighting Irish Coach.
