Notre Dame is heading into the game here with a 5-2 record. However, the Fighting Irish were completely crushed by the Wolverines. The game ended up being 45-14 and was very disappointing in bad weather for the Irish who could not get going offensively and left the defense on the field for far too long to be any good.
The Irish on the year have been able to score 35.6 points a game. The Irish have thrown the ball for 244 yards a game, but have managed to run the ball for 168 yards a game. The defense for the Irish is giving up 20.9 points a game. The Irish have allowed only 186 yards a game in the air and 173 yards a game on the ground.

However, what is really impressive for the Notre Dame squad is how well the Irish bounced back after the last loss the team had. Look for the Irish to come into this game and get a decent win on the day as the Hokies struggle in the game against the Irish defense. Final Score Prediction, Notre Dame Fighting Irish win and cover 35-17.
