Take Notre Dame. I think the Irish aren't being shown much respect with this line. It's always difficult to beat a team twice in the same season but this Notre Dame team I believe is up to the task. All they have been hearing is how Clemson wasn't at full strength their first meeting or they would not have been victorious. I don't buy that for a second. This Notre Dame team is legit. Their defense is one of the best in the country. They completely shut down the Clemson rushing attack in their first meeting and that will be key again this meeting. As a matter of fact nobody has been able to run against the Irish this season. Clemson will be better with Lawrence under center but I believe that is a challenge Notre Dame will embrace. Offensively Kyren Williams was outstanding in the first meeting, not only running, but his blitz pickups were phenomenal. Ian Book is a veteran and won't be rattled in any situation. Take the Irish here.
