The Pick

Notre Dame -20.5

The Irish defense held up their end of the bargain in Notre Dame’s Week 1 loss to Ohio State, but the offense left much to be desired after they rushed for just 76 yards. This week, the run game should get back on track while Notre Dame’s standout defense should by no means get 55 points handed to them like Norfolk State did last week.
