The Notre Dame offense is averaging 26.6 points per game with 207.9 passing yards per game and 178.1 rushing yards per game.

The Syracuse Orange are 6-1 (3-1) this season after they lost to Clemson by a score of 27-21 in their last game. Syracuse led this game 21-7 late in the second quarter, but allowed Clemson to score the last 20 points of the game for the loss. The Syracuse offense is averaging 33.9 points per game with 233.3 passing yards per game and 179.3 rushing yards per game. Garrett Shrader has thrown for 1,601 yards, 13 touchdowns, and four interceptions, while also rushing for 371 yards and six touchdowns for the Orange this season.

Notre Dame is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against the ACC and 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 road games. The under is 5-2 in Notre Dame’s last 7 games. Syracuse is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 October games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games. The under is 4-0 in Syracuse’s last 4 games.

Syracuse played very conservatively in the second half against Clemson and it cost them the win. Notre Dame was able to get back on the right track against UNLV after losing to Stanford in the game prior. Syracuse has a good defense and that will be the difference here. Give me the Orange at home.
