It’s a non conference match up between two teams who are both currently 1-1 on the season. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish make the trip to Chestnut Hill to take on the Boston College Eagles.
The Fighting Irish have won the last four meetings played between the two teams. In 2015 they come out ahead by a final score of 19-16.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Brian Kelly’s seat is getting very hot, and he can’t have another slip up like he did last weekend against the Georiga Bulldogs.
The Fighting Irish let the Bulldogs come to their stadium and escape with a win. The Bulldogs came out ahead by a final score of 20-19.
The offense just can’t seem to get enough going to really pull away from teams, and that has caught up to them again.
It happened a lot last year in their disaster of a season and they had all off season to figure it out and they couldn’t seem to do it.
The Fighting Irish’s quarterback is Brandon Wimbush and although he has played decent, he hasn’t done enough to put the offense over that hump.
On the season he has thrown for 394 yards and two touchdowns and one interception.
To win this game the Fighting Irish need to come out of the gates firing and not look back. They can’t let the Eagles hang around and feel like they have a chance.
If they do that the Eagles confidence will grow and they will feel like they can pull the big upset.
Boston College Eagles
On the other side of this match up is the Boston College Eagles who also come into this game with a 1-1 record, but they haven’t been facing near the competition that the Fighting Irish have.
In their last game they lost to Wake Forest who is a fringe bowl team by the final score of 34-10.
They seemed to revert back to the days where they can’t score many points and if that’s going to be the trend this season, it could make for a very long year.
To win this game they are going to need to score points, plain and simple.
This game isn’t going to end a 13-10 game so they need to make sure they give themselves a chance to win by having a good offensive game plan heading into this one.

The Boston College Eagles just don’t have the offense to keep up with the Fighting Irish.
