Drew Pyne led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to their 7th win of the season last week, 35-32 against Navy. They have fought back to 7-3 after an 0-2 start to the Marcus Freeman era in South Bend. Boston College needed an upset win over NC State last week to even get themselves to 3-7. 

Notre Dame’s offense has been explosive lately and even Boston College has been able to score with Emmett Morehead at QB, so we could get a high scoring affair in Week 12.

Boston College vs. Notre Dame Prediction and Pick

Notre Dame jumped all over Navy last week, but had to hold on for dear life as their offense went cold in the second half. They went into halftime ahead, 35-13, but Navy remained persistent with the run game and nearly stole it. 

Boston College will have to get it done different than Navy did. Notre Dame gave up 255 rush yards last week, but the Eagles are dead last in the country in rushing yards per game with only 61.4. Emmett Morehead had to throw the ball 48 times for 330 yards and three touchdowns last week to get to 21 points. If he can get the Eagles to 21 again this week that should make the over free money because Notre Dame’s offense has been great outside of the second half last week. 

Over the past four games the Fighting Irish are averaging 38.75 points per game which would nearly make them a top 10 scoring offense in the nation. 

Pick: Over 44.5 (-115)
