We have reached week nine of the college football season and by this point most teams will be playing conference games in this week.
But not every game will be a conference showdown and that will be the case in this one.
The NC State Wolfpack will make the trip up to Indiana to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. NC State has won the two previous match ups between the two teams.
NC State Wolfpack
The NC State Wolfpack might be one of the biggest surprises across all of college football. After losing their first game of the season against South Carolina on a hail mary they have won their last six games, and some of those were against some very tough competition.
They came in as underdogs against Florida State and Louisville and they were able to come out of both games with big wins.
For the Wolfpack the strength of the team is the offense. Coming into this game they are averaging 35.4 points per game.
On offense the Wolfpack are led by quarterback Ryan Finley who has done a good job of making smart plays and taking what the defense gives him.
He has thrown for 1968 yards and 11 touchdowns. The key part though is he hasn’t thrown any interceptions.
To win this game the Wolfpack are going to need to be better on the defensive side of the ball. The Fighting Irish are a really good offensive team, and although the Wolfpack can score they don’t really want this game getting into a shootout.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
On the other side of this match up is the Notre Dame Fighting who are one point away from a perfect season. Their only loss so far this year was a 20-19 defeat at the hand of the Georgia Bulldogs.
They come into this game off a really big win though. In their last game they took on the USC Trojans and most expected it be a really close game.
The Fighting Irish came out fired up though, and they dominated the game from start to finish on the way to a 49-14 victory.
A lot of the success for Notre Dame comes on the ground. They are currently rushing for 317.9 yards per game, and that is going to need to keep up if they want to win this game and keep climbing up the rankings.
To win this game the Fighting Irish just can’t overlook this game. They are the better team in this game but they can’t come into it thinking it’s going to be a cakewalk.
If they come in with that attitude they will lose this game. They need to pound the rock all game and control the time of possession.
