This game features an underachieving Notre Dame team coming off of a shocking loss to Duke, and a Syracuse team that picked up a big win against UConn to snap a 2 game losing streak.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
After starting the season off red hot with a 5 touchdown performance against Texas, Deshone Kizer has been above average throwing the ball, with 2 touchdowns and an interception in each of the last 3 games.
He will be able to make plays with his legs as he also has 5 touchdowns rushing on the ground, and should have a big game with 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing against a poor Orange defense.Runn
ing back Josh Adams had 60 yards and a score against Duke, he should reach the end zone again for the second straight week.
Equanimeous St. Brown has been the key playmaker for DeShone Kizer this year. He was able to haul in 6 passes for 116 yards and a score. This week he should reach the 150-yard mark and grab another score.
The poor play of the Notre Dame defense resulted in defensive coordinator Brian Van Gorder getting fired at the beginning of this week.
Look for the defense to play more inspired and shut down the Syracuse passing attack.
QB Eric Dungey has been a revelation for the Orange this season. Even in the losses he has played much better than the Orange fanbase have been used to seeing for the last couple of years.
This week against Notre Dame he should fall back to Earth, and have a 3 interception game.
Dontae Strickland will look to bounce back after a tough game against UConn. After racking up only 51 yards on 14 carries last week look for him to get 75 yards on the ground.
He is also a threat receiving the ball out of the backfield.
NAmba Etta-Tawo is a leading early candidate for the Bilettnikoff trophy and has been dominating defenses all season long.
I expect him to use his speed and strength against the Irish corners, and he should have another big game with over 150 yards receiving and a score.
The Syracuse defense has been up and down this year.
In wins against Colgate and UConn the defense looked good. However in the losses (especially Louisville), the defense resembled a unit that wouldn’t be able to stop any offenses in the country.
This unit should have a long game against one of the best QB’s in the country.

This one is over by halftime. Notre Dame’s offense gets quick scores in the first quarter to make Syracuse one dimensional, which will make things easier for the defense.
