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.
