CHICAGO - Notre Dame is literally heading into the eye of the storm. The Cubs will be there a few days later.
The sixth-ranked Irish head out East to face No. 12 Clemson, their raucous fans in "Death Valley" and the likely rains of Hurricane Joaquin soaking the team as they play Saturday night.
Most likely the Cubs will head East to Pittsburgh on Wednesday for a one-game playoff with the Pirates to determine the winner of the National League Wild Card.
JJ Stankevitz will have his eye on both over the next week as a writer for CSNChicago.com. He came on Sports Feed Thursday to discuss both the Irish and the Cubs with Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman.
