Notre Dame saw Sam Hartman go up against it as Wake Forest’s quarterback before. Now, Hartman is on the Irish’s side as the Deacons come to South Bend. There isn’t a lot to play for, but this particular storyline will be interesting to follow. Others are sure to emerge.
Here’s what experts are predicting for this game:
Ralph D. Russo, Associated Press
“After three straight years of top three in the ACC in scoring, Demon Deacons are second-to-last (20.5 points per game).”
David Kenyon, Bleacher Report
“Although a seventh loss wouldn’t totally remove Wake Forest from the hunt for bowl eligibility – thanks, APR scores! – the Demon Deacons should be playing with some desperation in South Bend. The problem is Notre Dame’s sturdy defense is likely to silence a Wake offense that hasn’t cracked 21 points since mid-September.”
