Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly appeared on ESPN this morning to preview tonight's massive game at Georgia. In the process, he seemed to anger a couple of different fan bases.

Kelly first said that Notre Dame is used to playing in big games - which is fair - adding that the Fighting Irish played at Louisville to open the season.

Notre Dame's head coach said that game was the "biggest" game for Louisville.

“It was the biggest game they ever played," he said.

Louisville fans don't seem to agree with him on that one.

Georgia fans, meanwhile, don't seem to be happy about Kelly's comments, either. Notre Dame's head coach downplayed how "big" this game is for the Fighting Irish. Kelly added that they have another big game at Virginia next weekend.

It should be a fun one in Athens tonight.

Notre Dame and Georgia are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
