What channel is Notre Dame vs Cincinnati airing on today? Time, TV schedule for the week 5 college football game
The Bearcats travel to South Bend, Indiana to face the only ranked opponent on their schedule this season.
The Fighting Irish host Cincinnati on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET in what will likely be one of their most competitive clashes this season. The Bearcats will look to end Notre Dame’s 26-game winning streak at home.
After sustaining a leg injury in Notre Dame’s 41-13 win, Jack Coan is expected to start for Notre Dame. Coach Brian Kelly has confirmed he likely suffered a soft tissue injury in the third quarter of the game. He took a massive blow and was sacked five times before leaving the pitch for the locker room.
Coan completed 77 of 127 passes for 986 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions in his first four games at Notre Dame. As he continues to build his momentum with the Fighting Irish, Coan faces issues with the offensive line. In Notre Dame’s 39-32 victory over Toledo, starting left tackle Michael Carmody left the field with a sprained ankle. Suffering from being absent for two games, the Fighting Irish offensive line allowed the second-highest total of 21 sacks in the FBS.

While Jack Coan and his offense look solid, they will be tested by the Cincinnati defense, ranked 27th overall. The Bearcats defense allowed 298.7 yards per game and six touchdowns in their first three games. Linebacker Darrian Beavers leads the sack defense with 1.5 with 21 tackles, followed by cornerback Arquon Busch with one sack and 10 tackles.
Quarterback Desmond Ridder is also expected to make progress for the Bearcats. He completed 54 of 83 passes for 748 yards and totaled seven touchdowns with two interceptions in three games. Ridder will likely continue to use wide receiver Tyler Scott and Michael Young Jr., who have 282 receiving yards. Young will have the opportunity to reunite with his former teammates for the first time since graduating from Notre Dame in 2020 and entering the transfer portal.
