The Notre Dame football team takes on BYU in their Shamrock Series game, and here are some bold predictions for the matchup.
The Notre Dame football team enters Saturday’s contest with 2-2 record. A win against BYU would significantly improve the outlook for the rest of the season. Here are this week’s bold predictions after a perfect trio of selections against North Carolina.
Notre Dame football vs. BYU: Shamrock Series Bold Predictions
Notre Dame will have a 100-yard receiver
The Fighting Irish will have a 100-yard receiver on Saturday afternoon. So far, this has only happened once against Marshall by tight end Michael Mayer in a losing effort. However, with diverse receiving options, the Notre Dame football team will notch another receiver over the century mark.
Will it come from a wide receiver, tight end, or running back? Most likely, Mayer repeats his performance in an NFL stadium that he will undoubtedly play in again as a professional.
The Irish will intercept BYU QB Jaren Hall
Gamblers know the importance of doubling down. In the vast majority of bold predictions, this writer guessed that the Notre Dame football team would snag a turnover – only to have the squad fail to force one except last week.
This week, Notre Dame football will force multiple turnovers with one of them coming in the form of an interception of BYU QB Jaren Hall. A defense that emphasizes turnovers eventually will progress to the mean. This could also be used as evidence as why Notre Dame will not intercept or recover a fumble.
Additionally, Hall has only thrown one interception this season. His career touchdown to interception ratio is 5.5 to 1.
Notre Dame will keep the Shamrock Series streak alive
The Fighting Irish have never lost a Shamrock Series game. From the Alamodome to Soldier Field, the barnstorming college football team won all ten Shamrock Series contests. The Irish will keep their winning streak alive on Saturday with a win against the BYU Cougars.
