Notre Dame is around 3 months from boarding the airplane to head to Dublin, Ireland. So I’ve decided to let you know what I think will happen this year for the Irish. Here’s my 2012-2013 season predictions for Notre Dame as of right now.
Week One- vs Navy — win (31-14)
Week Two- vs Purdue — win (24-20)
Week Three- at Michigan State — win (26-20 OT)
Week Four- vs Michigan — loss (24-34)
Week Five- vs Miami — win (27-23)
Week Six- vs Stanford — win (24-14)
Week Seven- vs BYU — loss (20-28)
Week Eight- at Oklahoma — loss (13-27)
Week Nine- vs Pittsburgh — win (14-10)
Week Ten- at Boston College — win (38-24)
Week Eleven- vs Wake Forest — win (30-20)
Week Twelve- at USC — loss (24-42)
Overall record — 8 Wins and 4 losses
This record would be a huge success for Notre Dame. They easily have the toughest schedule in the entire country and with quarterback controversy, you never know what could happen (good or bad), I think this would be a giant step in the right direction for ND. Some of the games I predicted could go either way, but 8-4 is a record that is not only manageable, but very good based on the strength of schedule.
