Phil's Forecast

What's this?

Why is #8 Notre Dame a home dog to #14 Georgia Tech? There are a couple of main reasons. ND is without their starting QB Zaire, top 2 projected RB's (Folston & Bryant), and their starting NT (Jarron Jones) who are all OFY. People know that ND is overpriced at home which is why they are just 18-31-5 as a home Fav. Also, GT has alot of people following the hottest team in Football as they have covered 9 straight gms including outright upsets of Clemson, GA, and Miss St. With that said, I like the Irish here as my computer is calling for them to win the game outright. While ND has struggled against Navy's option in recent years, they have faced it every year. With two games against the option this year, they probably spent a good portion of the spring and August prepping for it. I like rFr QB Kizer who is 6'4" 230, has a strong arm and is athletic. He gained a lot of confidence with that big TD pass vs VA on the road to pull out the win. Also, RB Prosise has looked great since moving back from WR and has rushed for 253 (6.8). ND also has 9 ret starters on DEF and will circle the wagons and get the home win, making this my Upset Pick of the Week
