With 12 weeks of college football in the books, there is a clash between two top 25 programs. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are currently 9-2 and are looking to prove that it is truly the eighth best team in the country. As for Stanford, the Cardinal are currently 8-3 and look to remain in the top 25. Both teams are on the outside looking into a college football playoff spot but a win against a ranked team would definitely help each of their resumes.
Notre Dame’s success is due to star running back Josh Adams. This season, Adams already has over 1,300 yards rushing along with nine rushing touchdowns. Adams is currently averaging a whopping 7.8 yards per carry and looks like one of the best running backs in all of college football. If Adams gets going behind the Irish’s elite offensive line, there is no chance that Stanford will be able to win this contest.
Stanford’s success is due to star running back Bryce Love. So far this season, Love already has over 1,700 yards rushing along with 16 rushing touchdowns. Love is currently averaging a whopping 8.8 yards per carry and also looks like one of the best running backs in all of college football. If Love continues to dominate like he has all season, then it is very unlikely that Notre Dame will win this contest.
As for my prediction, I have to side with Notre Dame. I think that Adams will have a big game due to the elite nature of Notre Dame’s offensive line. Stanford’s quarterback is slightly inferior to Notre Dame’s and I think that will play a huge role in this contest. I think Notre Dame wins by a touchdown or so.
