Notre Dame vs. North Carolina - Game Time, TV Schedule, Betting Line, Preview, Predictions

Notre Dame has emerged as a serious College Football Playoff contender. The Fighting Irish are 5-0, ranked No. 6 in the nation. Everett Golson, in his first year back after getting suspended, is a potential Heisman candidate.

Brian Kelly's squad has a huge game in two weeks at Florida State, but first, they must host North Carolina in South Bend, Ind. Will they take care of business before traveling to Tallahassee? 

Date: Saturday, Oct. 11

Time: 3:30 p.m. E.T. 

Location: Notre Dame Stadium

TV Channel: NBC

Betting line: Notre Dame -17 (via VegasInsiders)

Prediction: Notre Dame has had three fairly close contests in a row. The Fighting Irish beat Purdue and Syracuse by 16 points and scraped past Stanford with a three-point victory. 

Expect the Fighting Irish to win comfortably this Saturday. They're playing at home and Golson should have little difficulty scoring against a defense that's given up 42 points a game. Notre Dame should score 40-plus points in this game, easily. 

Bet on the Fighting Irish winning and covering the spread.
