The biggest game of college football's Week 12 slate, somewhat surprising, is taking place at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx. Notre Dame and Syracuse are set to kick off in a top 15 matchup in New York City.

Notre Dame is undefeated and one of the favorites for the College Football Playoff. The Fighting Irish probably need to remain undefeated in order to make it in, with the Orange posing the toughest test remaining for Brian Kelly's squad.

Syracuse has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2018 college football season, winning several games in impressive fashion in recent weeks.

Does Syracuse have any chance of pulling off an upset against Notre Dame today?

ESPN has made its prediction.

ESPN's Football Power Index is giving No. 3 Notre Dame a 74.8 percent chance to win today's game, while No. 12 Syracuse has a 25.2 percent chance of pulling off the upset.

Notre Dame and Syracuse are set to kick off 2:30 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on NBC.
