Most of the reason for the Hurricane bandwagon filling up is due to the game against North Carolina State. That was a very impressive game by Stephen Morris at quarterback and the comeback win was stunning, but this will give Miami a
hangover. The Hurricanes are 17-35 ATS in their last 52 games following a win against the spread, just more evidence that they do not rebound well after a win.
The Fighting Irish are also a much better team on defense. The Wolfpack have a porous defense that will allow big gains and plenty of points, but not against the Irish.
Notre Dame brings in the fourth ranked scoring defense in the nation allowing only nine points a game and protecting the end zone with a fierce demeanor. The front seven has been brilliant led by sophomore defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt and senior All-American Manti Te’o who is a Heisman candidate.
Do you remember what happened the last time the Canes hit the road against a top-ranked team? The Canes went to Manhattan to play Kansas State and were destroyed in every facet of the game.
Miami’s defense is atrocious and Boston College, Georgia Tech, and NC State aren’t exactly world beaters and Miami has given up 32, 36, and 37 points respectively to each of them. That same defense will be demolished against the Irish offense.
The Fighting Irish are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a bye week and will have plenty of preparation time for the Canes. The Irish will blow away the Canes for the College Football Lock of the Week.
