We have reached week seven of the college football season which means most of the games are conference showdowns. That isn’t the case in this one though when the Pitt Panthers make the trip to South Bend Indiana to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The last time these two teams played was in 2015 when the Fighting Irish came out ahead 42-30.
Overall the Pitt Panthers have had a disappointing season but they still have a 3-3 record and everything is still in front of them in terms of making a bowl game.
The Panthers offense has really struggled at times this year and has held them back in their last game against the Syracuse Orange the offense was impressive putting up 44 points on the way to a victory over the Syracuse Orange.
The Panthers defense has really struggled all year too and even last week it was a big weakness. They are giving up over 32 points and 420 yards per game.
In this game it’s going to start with the defensvie side of the ball because in a shootout in this game it won’t end well.
They need to be strong early and they are probably going to need to create some turnovers early. If the defense struggles early and they fall behind, it could be a long afternoon of football.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
On the other side of this matchup is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who really look like a playoff team this year, but most years they find a way to slip against a team like the Panthers.
At the beginning of the season they were winning games but weren’t exactly playing well. They made a quarterback change bringing in Ian Book to start and it led to a lot better games.
So far this season he has thrown for 887 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception. He isn’t turning the ball over and that is key.
In this game the Fighting Irish just need to play their game and not look ahead. If they look ahead that could be troubling and they could be upset.
