Here’s a prediction for every game on the Fighting Irish’s schedule.

ESPN’s updated “Football Power Index” updated last week.

Included in the FPI are projected results for every game on a team’s schedule.

Here’s what ESPN is predicting for every Notre Dame game this season. The percentage attached for each game is the win probability versus the respective opponent.

Saturday, Sept. 2 vs. Temple: Win (95%)

Saturday, Sept. 9 vs. Georgia: Win (51%)

Saturday, Sept. 16 @ Boston College: Win (81%)

Saturday, Sept. 23 @ Michigan State: Win (2%)

Saturday, Nov. 11 @ Miami: Loss (35%)

Saturday, Nov. 18 vs. Navy: Win (90%)

So, according to ESPN’s FPI, the Fighting Irish will go 10-2 in the regular season—suffering losses to Miami in week 10 and Stanford in week 12.. There are a total of six games this season that Notre Dame has less than a 70 percent chance of winning.
