It’s a non conference match up on Saturday evening at the Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend Indiana.
The Miami of Ohio Redhawks come to town to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. This is the first meeting ever between the two teams which is surprising with how close these schools are located.
Miami (Ohio) Redhawks
The Miami of Ohio Redhawks come into this game with a 2-2 record, but if they would have been a little better at closing out games they could easily be 4-0.
Their two losses have been by a total of nine points in each of those games they had a chance near the end of the game to take the lead, they just couldn’t get the ball into the end zone.
The Redhawks are led by Junior quarterback Gus Ragland who has looked really impressive this year. He comes into this game having thrown for 881 yards and eight touchdowns.
He has also only throw two interceptions which is going to need to stay at two if they want any chance to pull the upset against the Fighting Irish.
On the defensive side of the ball they have been good this year giving up only 19 points per game. To win this game the defense is going to need to step up and slow down an Irish team that has had no issue scoring points so far this season.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
On the other side of this match up is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who have played really well so far this year except one big slip up against the Georgia Bulldogs.
Against Georgia the offense really struggled, and they couldn’t make a big stop down the stretch and that led to a 2-19 defeat at the hands of the Bulldogs.
On the offensive side of the ball for the Fighting Irish it’s all about running the ball. On the season they are averaging over 293 yards per game on the ground.
The quarterback for the Fighting Irish is Brandon Wimbush who has been a good game manager so far this year. He comes into this game having thrown for 663 yards and three touchdowns.
The only concerning thing is he has thrown two interceptions which wouldn’t seem like a lot but when you have only thrown three touchdowns that’s something that needs to be worked on.
To win this game the Fighting Irish just need to play their game in this one. They are the better team and they just need to play their game.
They also need to get out to the fast start. If they start out slow and let the Redhawks hang around they could be upset in this game.
