Youngstown State @ Notre Dame

Current Records: Youngstown State 2-0; Notre Dame 1-0

What to Know

The Youngstown State Penguins will square off against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the road at 4 p.m. ET Sunday at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Youngstown State will be seeking to avenge the 87-78 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Dec. 21 of 2015.

The Penguins had enough points to win and then some against the UT Martin Skyhawks this past Wednesday, taking their contest 90-72.

Meanwhile, the Fighting Irish sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 79-76 victory over the Radford Highlanders this past Thursday. Notre Dame's Nate Laszewski looked sharp as he dropped a double-double on 28 points and 12 rebounds.

Youngstown State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 11.5-point spread they are up against. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.

Their wins bumped Youngstown State to 2-0 and Notre Dame to 1-0. Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
