Notre Dame vs. Florida State live score, updates, highlights from 2021 season opener

No. 9 Notre Dame faces Florida State on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida. The game will be televised by ABC. 

The Fighting Irish, who advanced to the College Football Playoff semifinals last season, are seeking their fifth straight 10-win campaign under coach Brian Kelly. Notre Dame is in a season of transition after it lost nine starters on offense and defensive coordinator Clark Lea, who led the team to a top-15 scoring defense nationally over the last three seasons. 

However, given its returning and incoming talent, Notre Dame is expected to compete at a high level, even with four ranked opponents entering Week 1 on its schedule. 

Florida State, which is entering its second year under coach Mike Norvell, finished 3-6 last year and is seeking its first winning season since 2017. The Seminoles signed the No. 11 recruiting class nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite, and brought in several notable transfers, including senior quarterback McKenzie Milton — who previously finished sixth in Heisman Trophy voting at UCF in 2018 — and senior defensive linemen Jermaine Johnson and Keir Thomas, who transferred from Georgia and South Carolina, respectively.
