Toledo vs. Notre Dame odds heading into game week

The Rockets are catching the Irish on a short week, but still have a huge challenge ahead of them.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are set to open its 2021 home slate in Week 2 when welcoming the Toledo Rockets to South Bend. The game is scheduled Saturday, September 11 and will kick off at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Toledo (1-0) managed to make light work of Norfolk State in a 49-10 season-opening win on Saturday. Quarterback DeQuan Finn was more effective on the ground, rushing for 82 yards and nine carries and a touchdown. Wide receiver Devin Maddox was the definition of a big play threat, taking two receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown.

Notre Dame survived a dramatic encounter in Tallahassee with a 41-38 overtime win over Florida State on Sunday night. Quarterback Jack Coan was 26-35 for 366 yards with four touchdowns and an interception, but UND struggled to run the ball at times with just 35 carries for 65 yards. There was also plenty of questionable tackling on defense that head coach Brian Kelly will want cleaned up ahead of Week 2.
