Irish versus Sooners - Prediction

Lads you should expect a whole stadium of red and noise
I don’t see Notre Dame winning this game.

*** Suspect offense.
*** Worrisome special teams play.

*** Young quarterback.
*** Playing in a very hostile camp.

*** Las Vegas making us an 8-10 point underdog.
*** Oklahoma is playing better every week after losing to Kansas State.

*** A secondary that will be sorely tested and thrown at by a pass-happy team.
*** Oklahoma used the Jayhawks as a tune-up for the Irish. They even had a kick return and punt return for touchdowns. Ouch Charlie.

Last week was a trap game as the Irish were leaning forward in the foxhole and almost got caught at it. That happens to teams. Especially after emotional wins over Miami, Stanford and the two Michigan teams it was inevitable that Notre Dame would be peeking. The schedule has been brutal.
Everett Golson is the key. After the concussion he did not practice with any contact. He did not play last week at all. If cleared, I suspect Brian Kelly will not want him running. A quarterback that can run can open up a game with scrambling. Tommy Rees became a handoff specialist in the second half of the BYU game, I’m not sure that is going to cut it against the Sooners.  Andrew Hendrix could of done that and he can run. 

Before the season I thought my wildest dreams would be a 10-2 season with loses to USC and Oklahoma. Secretly I thought loses to Michigan and Stanford were real possibilities.
Lads - Watch your step. They don't clean up after animals in Norman
I’m going with my heart and not my brains.
