The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 7-0 this season, and they head into a huge battle against Oklahoma in Norman Saturday night. Through this current streak Notre Dame has managed to rank 77th in scoring, and 100th in passing offense.
The part that becomes hilarious is, if you listen to Notre Dame fans in forums and groups, you would think this is the most dominant team in College Football. They talk as if beating Oklahoma is just a foregone conclusion.
The reality is most serious fans with no ties to Homerism realize that the Irish have a snowballs chance in hell of winning this game. The Sooners debuted as a 10 point favorite, and that's an easy pick in my mind.
Bob Stoops has amassed a 77-3 home record, and the Sooners come in one of the hottest teams in the country. The Sooners come in 5th in scoring and 12th in PA. That's right, the Sooner defense is no slouch either, and that does not make it easy for a 77th ranked offense.The Irish fans have to realize, if you want to compete with OU in Norman, you have to possess some type of offense.
We will see which offense can exploit these solid defenses. In my opinion that answer is very easy, and it's my Pick Of The Week.
