The Massachusetts Minutemen travel to Notre Dame Stadium where the Fighting Irish await.

 The Massachusetts Minutemen are still looking for their first win after a 25-23 loss to visiting Temple as a two touchdown underdog. The Minutemen saw Temple kick a 32 yard field goal with 12 seconds remaining to absorb the loss which was made possible when the Owls returned a blocked PAT for two points with 1:20 left in the game. Both teams finished with between 440-460 yards and a combined five turnovers and no rushing attack to speak of. UMass rode the right arm of quarterback Blake Frohnapfel to 393 yards and three touchdowns on a 29-55 effort with an interception. Tajae Sharpe led UMass in receiving with eleven receptions for 156 yards while Rodney Mills caught five balls for 104 yards and a pair of scores.

USA TODAY Sports

Most experts believed a banged up Notre Dame would have a difficult time with the Georgia Tech option but at the end of the day it was the Yellow Jackets that had the hard time with the Fighting Irish capturing a 30-22 home win. The Irish were able to run and throw their way to 457 yards while GT was held to a mere 337 yards with the option held to 216 yards and just over 4 ½ yards per touch. Irish quarterback DeShone Kizer completed 21-30 for 242 yards with a touchdown and an interception with William Fuller catching six balls for 131 yards and a score. Notre Dame dominated the trenches with CJ Prosise rushing 22 times for 198 yards and three trips to the end zone. 

The Minutemen are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game while the over is 6-1-1 in Minutemen last 8 road games and   6-1 in Minutemen last 7 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. The Fighting Irish are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and the under is 5-1 in Fighting Irish last 6 games in September while Notre Dame  are 1-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. Huge chalk that leaves room for the back door if Notre Dame doesn’t pay attention but if they play their game they should cover…
