David Ortiz gives Torii Hunter Jr. his locker at Fenway Park

Notre Dame and Boston College are set to face each other in the Shamrock Series at the legendary Fenway Park on Saturday night.

There's no one more familiar with playing at Fenway than David Ortiz, who had one request for the Fighting Irish:

Let's hope Hunter Jr. takes his father's advice to watch out for pranks by Ortiz.

Hunter Jr. has caught 21 passes for 267 yards and a pair of touchdowns during his junior year. Kickoff between the Irish and Eagles is set for 7:30 p.m.
