Notre Dame notched one of the best wins of the 2018 college football season on Saturday night, as the Fighting Irish knocked off Stanford in a battle of top 10 teams in South Bend, Ind.

Brian Kelly's team has received some devastating news today, though. One of the Fighting Irish's top players is out for the season.

Alex Bars, a standout offensive lineman and preseason All-American, will miss the rest of the 2018 season with a knee injury.

"Brian Kelly announces Alex Bars suffered a ACL/MCL injury. Lost for the season. Kelly calls it 'devastating' for the locker room," Pete Sampson tweeted.

Kelly seemed somewhat encouraging about Bars' injury last night.

“Alex Bars, it’s a knee injury,” Kelly told reporters. “He was able to walk off. That was good news. But we won’t know until we get the MRI. We’ll get the MRI and get a better understanding of his situation.”

Unfortunately, the MRI showed the worst. Bars will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Notre Dame, undefeated on the season, is set to travel to Virginia Tech next Saturday.
