Despite a second-half surge from Vanderbilt, Notre Dame held on for their third victory of the season on Saturday. Now, the Fighting Irish will have to improve their act on the road against Wake Forest.
Before Notre Dame deals with their grueling stretch against Stanford and Virginia Tech, Brian Kelly's team needs to focus on this weekend. Wake Forest has looked impressive through three games, losing just one showdown to Boston College.
Nonetheless, the Fighting Irish will enter this matchup as the favorite.
According to ESPN's Football Power Index, Notre Dame has a 70.9 percent chance of winning.
For Wake Forest, playing against Notre Dame will provide a great test before they begin their conference schedule. When it comes to the Fighting Irish, they've yet to defeat any opponent decisively.
