Prediction: Notre Dame 52, Georgia Tech 7
Without a doubt Notre Dame’s most important game of the year, Notre Dame will take on Trevor Lawrence and Clemson under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium. Not only does this game have major playoff implications for both teams, it is also another opportunity for Brian Kelly to prove he can win a big game at Notre Dame. This game will be a back and forth battle with neither team being able to pull away all game. Notre Dame will give Clemson their biggest challenge all year, but Clemson will score as time expires to escape with a victory and hand the Irish their first loss of the season.
Prediction: Clemson 31, Notre Dame 28
at Boston College
Coming off a heartbreaking loss to Clemson, Notre Dame will take on Phil Jurkovec and Boston College in a potential trap game. Notre Dame will come out playing sluggish, but by the 2nd quarter things should pick up and Notre Dame will end up getting the victory. The upset minded Eagles will put up a fight against Notre Dame, but the Irish will be too talented for Boston College to keep up.
Prediction: Notre Dame 31, Boston College 17
