Boston College (5-3)
#2 Notre Dame (7-0)
Could this game have any greater significance in the hearts and minds of the BC faithful?
Another year and another chance to honor the memory of Welles Crowther, a hero of 9/11,
and a true BC Eagle. This year that chance comes against one of BC’s greatest rivals: The
Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The #2 ranked Irish are coming off an upset win over Clemson,
perhaps their biggest win in several decades, but they’ll be entering a Holy War like nothing
they’ve ever experienced. Nothing left to say but, “when things are wrong and the breaks
are beating the boys, ask them to go in there with all they’e got and win just one for

BC is a 13.5 underdog to the Fighting Irish. The over/under for the game is 50
The odds are pretty stacked against the Eagles this week. Ian Book is leading a physical,
well-balanced offense that uses its running game to set up its passing attack. On the other
side of the ball, Notre Dame’s defense is big upfront and only surrenders 14.6 points per
game. If the Eagles’ passing game can continue to be explosive, they may be able to force
Notre Dame to go to the air early, but that will mean the defense will need to slow down the
Notre Dame running game. Like in the first half against Clemson, BC will need to be flawless
and hope Fighting Irish make some mistakes.
