Kelly told Rich Eisen the following Wednesday, according to CollegeFootballTalk:

Well, I think we’re gonna play. I don’t have definitive, 100%, but, obviously, things are trending that way, we’re moving in that direction, we want to play in the fall. Look, at the end of the day, those decisions are going to be made by our president and board of trustees, not the football coach at Notre Dame. So let’s get that straight.

This is a great update for fans around the globe. It’s a great update for a couple reasons. First, Kelly coaches one of the most historic programs in America.

If the Irish are going to play football, then it’s a sign most schools likely will too. While Kelly might not be responsible for making the decision, I’m sure he’s aware of the information the decision to return will be based on.

If he’s confident, then that’s good enough for me.

Secondly, the Fighting Irish are scheduled to play Wisconsin this season, and it’s one of the most anticipated games of the season.

The fact Kelly seems to think the season will happen is a great sign for the matchup in Lambeau happening as scheduled.
