The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Stanford Cardinal face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Stanford Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2019, it was Notre Dame that won that 45-29. 

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish come into this game with a 10-1 record overall and they have gone 8-3 against the spread. Over the last three games the Fighting Irish have given up only nine points total, and it’s going to need to be the defense that steps up in a big way in this game.

Under center for the Fighting Irish has been Jack Coan who has thrown for 2,296 yards, 18 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

Tanner McKee is under center for Stanford and he has thrown for 2,155 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. If Stanford wants any chance to win this game, they are going to need the defense to be a lot better.

Notre Dame is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall. Stanford is 0-9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games in November. The under is 4-0 in Notre Dame ‘s last four games in November. The under is 4-0 in Fighting Irish last 4 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. The Fighting Irish are 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 games as a favorite.

Stanford’s defense is awful, and they are going to struggle to slow down Notre Dame in this game. Look for Notre Dame to put up close to 42 points and that will be enough to cover the spread.
