Notre Dame and Georgia Tech will face off in what should be one of the games of the week.
Notre Dame overcame losing their starting quarterback to come back and win on the road against Virginia 34-27.

I think this will be a high scoring game if Notre Dame's quarterback can play like he did last week. With that being said i think Georgia Tech's run game will be too much for Notre Dame to handle. I will take Georgia Tech and their experience at quarterback to win this high scoring game.
