What the experts are predicting: Notre Dame vs. Wake Forest

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.”
