Lions, Irish Set For Showdown

Fourth ranked Notre Dame faces nineteenth rated Penn State..

Possibly the most decorated program in college football history takes on one of the sport's most celebrated coaches for the first time in 14 years when the third-ranked Irish open their home schedule Saturday against Joe Paterno and No. 19 Penn State.

Paterno had an abrupt answer when asked if Notre Dame might be vulnerable at home after losing to Southern California and Michigan State in South Bend last season.

"I haven't got the slightest idea what you're talking about,'' the 41-year coaching veteran said. "All I know is the team we got to play this Saturday is a very good, outstanding football team and we have to play them on the road.''
