Two historic teams going at it, this should be a hell of a game. You have to give Notre Dame the big advantage due to its consistent offense, but Stanford has proven itself this season with a fiesty defense. This should be a fun game.
This line is a little steep for my taste, as the Stanford Cardinal are an elite defensive team that should put pressure on the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame probably wins, but Stanford can hang around and keep this game within single digits.
