There can be no doubt that the biggest game of Week 4 in college football this week is Georgia-Notre Dame. It’s one of the biggest non-conference games in recent memory and a potential College Football Playoff elimination game.
Ahead of the game, college football analyst Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press gave his predictions for the match. Russo predicted a 35-17 Georgia win, covering the 14-point spread, since they are too good for Notre Dame to handle.
Another big game against an elite opponent that will be very difficult for the Irish to hang with … GEORGIA 35-17.
That opinion is widely held by analysts, sports books and pundits alike.
The two teams last played each other in 2017 at South Bend. Then-freshman Jake Fromm led the Bulldogs on a game-winning drive that culminated in a Rodrigo Blankenship field goal to win 20-19.
Georgia seems to have only gotten better since 2017 though. The Bulldogs are one of the favorites to win the national title, let alone the SEC Championship.
Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish will have their work cut out for them as they head to Athens and a hostile crowd for one of their toughest regular season games ever.
The game will be played at 8 p.m. EST and will air on CBS.
