Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
Huge game this week, perhaps you’ve heard?
NC State Game Watch
Saturday, October 21st, 12:30 pm (Pacific Time)
In the wake of last week’s domination of the Trojans, the #9 Irish face another tough opponent this week, the #14 Wolfpack of NC State. ESPN’s power index gives Notre Dame a 76.9% probability of scoring their first victory over NC State in a series that currently stands at 2-0. Unlike last week’s matchup however, this week pits our 6th-ranked rushing offense (341 YPG) vs. a 6th-ranked rushing defense (for reference, UGA is #4). On the other hand, NC state’s passing defense ranks a dismal #122, which will make an interesting matchup with ND’s #118-ranked passing offense,
so this may be the week we finally see an exciting Irish passing game. Really the only other notable stat is that NC State struggles in the red zone, reaching the end-zone only 60% of the time. The game line favors ND by 7.5, so oddsmakers agree that the Irish will probably win this one, but it looks like we’ll have to do it through the air. Kickoff is perfectly timed for a late lunch, which means it’s a great week to join us at one of our three game watch locations! Whether you are an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, we’d love to have you with us! Here’s where we’ll be: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista
