The Irish are looking good to challenge for a playoff spot if they win out. That would include a trip to Fenway this weekend.
Boston College may not be all that great but they usually push back. Let’s see what happens.
Admittedly I am not a big believer in Notre Dame but they have played well against a pretty good schedule. It is always interesting when your best game is a loss though, like they have against top ranked Clemson.
This year’s group doesn’t seem to have a particular strength but at the same time they have no glaring weaknesses either.
Since taking over for Malik Zaire QB DeShone Kizer has played well, probably better than expected given he was pretty unknown prior to. He gives them a chance to be balanced with their attack and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes.
The Irish should be able to let their talent win out in this one but the Eagles have a reputation for making things bloody and uncomfortable.
The Eagles are not going to go bowling this season. They have had some chances to make some noise and failed and this is their final one…and at Fenway Park to boot.
Most probably don’t know it but this is one of the elite defensive teams in the country this season. They are first in yards allowed and third in points with strong peripherals all the way around.
The reason they have been losing is because they are terrible on offense. Take away their 76 point outburst against Howard and they have failed to crack even 25 points in any other game this season.
That kind of weak output means they have to be almost perfect on D. They held the likes of FSU and Clemson to 14 and 34 points so I like their chances of playing enough defense to stay in the game.
This is their second to last game of the season but I am not sure if it is really a home game given the special location. Maybe they can make something special happen too.
