Notre Dame and North Carolina State are battling one another, Hurricane Matthew and a soggy field, so it’s not surprising that it hardly resembles football.
The field resembles a murky bog. Players have been slipping, sliding and struggling to play in the horrible conditions.
Here is a quick look at Notre Dame center Sam Mustipher failing to even snap the ball to DeShone Kizer.
