Huge playoff implications in this one. Notre Dame needs to upset the Cardinal to close the year if they want to be in.
It doesn’t look like any program from the PAC 12 is in consideration but the one that has a chance is Stanford…only if they win though.
Throughout the course of the season I have not been very impressed with what I have seen from Notre Dame. I know they are not a terrible team but I am not buying them for the playoffs over some other one loss teams.
They are a complete team though with no specific weakness and they won’t be intimidated by the physicality that Stanford is know for. They will push back.
Not helping matters this week is that they might not be able to run the ball the way they want to. Their starting tailback is dinged up and its not like there were dominant in that area anyway.
The Irish have put themselves in a situation where it looks like they control their own destiny but this one is far from a gimme.
Up until a few weeks ago Stanford had played it smart, losing in the first week of the season and using every week thereafter to get stronger and stronger.
Their chances of making the playoffs are slim at the moment but they have a chance to close the regular season on a high note with a victory.
As the season has come along they have found their legs, literally. Christian McCaffrey is second in the nation in rushing yards and a Heisman candidate – he has 9 straight games with 100+ yards on the ground.
That really takes the pressure off of Kevin Hogan, who is having a fine senior season.
Stanford will look to pound the rock against the Irish and use their defensive prowess to force them into some uncomfortable situations. The formula is simple, the execution is the challenge.
