Notre Dame's draw is arguably the worst among the top seeds in the NCAA tournament.
Notre Dame was shipped off to Iowa City instead of playing at home like Baylor, Stanford and Connecticut, On Tuesday night, they'll face ninth-seeded Iowa in the second round in front of a hostile crowd of as many as 10,000 people.
This would be a much bigger problem if the Fighting Irish weren't so good on the road.
Notre Dame (32-1) will put its perfect road record on the line against the Hawkeyes (21-12). The Fighting Irish have won at Connecticut, Tennessee and everywhere else in this remarkable season, and they're confident they can do the same at Iowa.
