It’s hard to believe, but Carlo Calabrese will be playing his final home game for Notre Dame this afternoon. The inside linebacker, who graduated Verona High School with the Class of 2009, is in his fifth year with the Fighting Irish and today they take on the BYU Cougars.

Both teams come into the games with 7-3 records and a key Notre Dame fan blog says Calabrese could hold the key to a green and gold victory:

Irish leading tackler Carlo Calabrese will face another stiff test this week in running back Jamaal Williams. Calabrese has been a catalyst for the Irish rush defense all season with his physicality and will need to continue that this week. Williams is a balanced back with 940 yards rushing and six touchdowns on the season. Williams is going to get his touches but if Calabrese can contain him it could force BYU to pass the ball which is not a strength for the Cougars.

The game will be on NBC at 3:30 p.m.
