Game Trap Catholics vs. Mormons Prediction

This game really scares me.

Mormon Temple - Salt Lake City

The tendency is to look past BYU towards Oklahoma.
After coming off emotionally charged games against Sparty, The Skunkbears, Da U, and now The Tree, staying focused and not falling into being bushwhacked is going to be a chore for Brian Kelly and crew.

It happened to WVU last week when Texas Tech caught them off guard after tight wins over Baylor and Texas. It has happened to the Irish against BC a number of times.  You just are mentally and physically drained.
The issue is what Irish offense is going to show up. The one that can move the ball on the ground and not put it on the ground or another scary victory eked out by a strong defense.

Notre Dame Basilica - South Bend
Well let’s see how did we do last week?

Predicted Notre Dame 28 and Stanford 17

Final score Notre Dame 20 and Stanford 13
I think we would have hit it really close if the rain had not been a factor, it kept the scoring low that's for sure.

This week?  Hmmmmm.
The match up is BYU's bowl game for all intented purposes.  Being independent they don't have a lot of options, kind of like the Irish.  Either we get a BCS bid or watch them all on TV.

The drums along the Saint Joseph River are pounding that Everett Golson may NOT start against BYU. Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix are getting reps while Golson waits on the medical staff to clear him to play.  Concussions are obviously tricky and it is important to medically get it right.

So is that a good thing or bad? BYU now has a more complicated defensive game plan to put in place.
Notre Dame 31 and BYU 9
