SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Jack Coan admits it is going to be a little strange this Saturday when No. 12 Notre Dame takes on his old team, No. 18 Wisconsin, at Chicago's Soldier Field.

"It's definitely going to be weird," the 22-year-old grad transfer quarterback said. "It's going to be a lot of my friends I'm going to be playing against, guys I still talk to today. But at the end of the day, it's just another football game and I like to think I won't get more excited for one game than the next."

Both his current coach, Brian Kelly, and his old coach, Paul Chryst, believe Coan will handle his emotions well.
