vs. Florida State
Coming off a bye week, Notre Dame takes on Florida State under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium. Florida State has struggled the past few seasons, but they have enough talent this year to give Notre Dame some trouble. Notre Dame’s defense wins this game for them, and Notre Dame scores late to give themselves a double digit victory.
Prediction: Notre Dame 27, Florida State 14
Notre Dame will take on a very good Louisville team in Week 7. Louisville, who is coming off an impressive 8-5 season and returning 15 starters, will be sure to give Notre Dame a challenge. Louisville will nearly pull off the upset against Notre Dame, but the Irish will score late in the 4th quarter to pull off the victory in one of the best games of the season.
Prediction: Notre Dame 28, Louisville 24
Pitt seems to give Notre Dame trouble every time they play, but I think this year will be different. Similar to the Virginia Tech game last season, I think the win over Louisville will get Notre Dame over the hump and Notre Dame will start playing their best football all year. Notre Dame will surprise everyone by rolling to an easy victory and moving to 6-0 on the season.
Prediction: Notre Dame 45, Pitt 17
