It feels like this 46.5 number is just a tad too high right now for a Notre Dame game. We have seen several teams come to South Bend full of sound and fury, but in the end, it was the defense that ultimately kept teams like BYU, Stanford, Michigan, and Purdue in games, not the offense. It goes without saying that the Golden Domers play some of the best defense in America, though at least the streak of games without allowing a rushing touchdown finally went by the boards last week. Still, taking a closer look at the total points scored in recent Notre Dame games… 43 against Oklahoma, 31 against BYU, 33 against Stanford (with overtime), 44 against Miami, 19 against Michigan, 23 against Michigan State, 37 against Purdue… How in the heck is a Pittsburgh team, one that has an offense that is certainly worse than Oklahoma’s and Michigan’s, going to produce enough points to be able to get this one into the 40s?
Pittsburgh @ Notre Dame Pick: Under 46.5
Pittsburgh @ Notre Dame Score Prediction: Notre Dame 24 – Pittsburgh 13
