The only win during that stretch was in their last game against Notre Dame, a game they won by ten points. Notre Dame on the season is averaging 73 points per game while their defense is giving up 73.1 points per game. At times the defense has been super inconsistent and they need to be more consistent on that side of the ball. In this game, the defense is going to need to step up.
