The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Iowa State Cyclones meet in college football action from Camping World Stadium. 

Notre Dame comes in here at 10-2 overall. The Irish are currently riding a five-game win streak, Taking out Virginia Tech, Duke, Navy, Boston College and Stanford during that stretch. 

In the win over the Cardinal, Notre Dame’s Ian Book posted 255 yards with four TDs, and Tony Jones rushed for 50 yards. Cole Kmet topped the receivers there on 77 yards from five catches. 


Over on the Iowa State side, they’re 7-5 so far. The Cyclones had consecutive wins going versus Texas and Kansas, but lost their last game to Kansas State 27-17. 

In the loss to the Wildcats, Iowa State QB Brock Purdy posted 185 yards and a TD, and Breece Hall rushed for 59 yards with a score. Tarique Milton added 78 yards on four receptions to lead the team there. 

The Irish are 4-0 ATS in the last four overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four as a favorite. Notre Dame is 4-0 ATS in the last four non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last five neutral-site games. 

Meanwhile, Iowa State is 0-4 ATS in their last four neutral-site games and 1-5 ATS in the last six in December. The Cyclones are 1-4-1 ATS in the last six overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven non-conference games. 

Since their loss to Michigan and their one-point escape over Virginia Tech, Notre Dame has found themselves back in the groove, posting at least 38 points over each of their last four games. The Irish defense is back as well, allowing 24 or fewer in each of their last five outings. 

As for Iowa State, they looked pretty flat against Kansas State but on the whole they’ve been pretty competitive against just about everybody this season. That said, I like the Cyclones to hang around for a while here but ultimately for Notre Dame to take the cover.
