The Notre Dame Fighting Irish started the 2020 college football season with a bang, winning their first 10 games in a row. However, that's where the fun ended. The Fighting Irish lost their final two games to the Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide in the ACC Championship Game and Rose Bowl, respectively.

Seeing as how they were so close to victory, there's no doubt that the Fighting Irish will want to start the new campaign on a good note.

Notre Dame will kick off the 2021 season with a road game against the Florida State Seminoles. Considering the Seminoles went 3-6 in 2020, this game will give the Fighting Irish a prime opportunity to show how dominant they can be.

Notre Dame vs Florida State Odds & Spread Week 1 - 2021

Even after losing a handful of players to the NFL and through transfers, Notre Dame is still the clear-cut road favorites against Florida State, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's odds. The hometown Seminoles are currently the 9.5-point underdogs ahead of the matchup.

The Week 1 contest will be the first meeting between the two teams since September 2020. The Fighting Irish walked away with the victory as the dominant 42-26 winners, so it'll be interesting to see whether or not history will repeat itself this year.
