The game should be closely contested. Both teams are similar in that they thrive on the run and defend well against it. Notre Dame’s passing defense and passing attack are better than Pittsbugh’s. This will be the key to the game. If Floyd and company can produce and Rees plays mistake free look for the Irish to go on a two game winning streak. The Panthers rushing attack is fierce however and will be troublesome to the Notre Dame offense.
