Notre Dame faces Georiga Tech on Saturday, October 31st at Bobby Dodd Stadium for week nine of NCAA football action.
Notre Dame is coming off an impressive 45-3 win over Pittsburgh in week eight of the season to improve to 5-0 on the year. Notre Dame is also a perfect 4-0 in ACC conference play this season, as the Fighting Irish and the Clemson Tigers remain the two favorites in the ACC. Notre Dame is currently ranked #4 in the nation and should be able to move to 6-0 with a road win over a feasible Georiga Tech team. Notre Dame scores 35.6 points per game and earns 439.4 total yards per contest as well. Notre Dame's offense is impressive, but nothing compares to its defense. Notre Dame has allowed only 9.8 points per game to the opposition, which is an unreal stat line through five games this season.
Georgia Tech is coming off a 48-27 loss to Boston College last week on the road. Georgia Tech has now lost four of its last five games and two games straight. Georgia Tech is 2-4 overall this season and 2-3 in ACC conference play. Georgia Tech's defense has struggled mightily recently, as Georgia Tech allowed 121 points combined through the past two weeks, which absurd. Georiga Tech on the season allows 41.2 points per game to the opposition, which includes an average of 479.2 total yards per game as well. Georgia Tech scores 22.8 points per game and earns 396.3 total yards per contest as well. Georgia Tech will now have the daunting task of taking on a very tough Notre Dame team at home, a team that Georgia Tech has not played against since 2015 (a 30-22 loss).
Notre Dame opens as 20-point favorites in this one with the total set at 56.5. I see Notre Dame having no issues in this one, even on the road. Notre Dame is a bad matchup for Georgia Tech, especially when you look at how bad Georgia Tech has struggled in these past two weeks. I will take Notre Dame and lay the points here.
