I said that Notre Dame would be OK without Bonzie Colson due to all the shooting on the floor, but it's hard seeing the Irish stay above water without Matt Farrell as well. You're talking about Notre Dame's top two players who are also highly experienced and key in big moments. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have had their ups and downs this season, but they're fresh off a win over Miami and hung around with Notre Dame when they met a couple of weeks ago in South Bend. With the Irish banged up, you have to like the Yellow Jackets in this pick em.
