In NCAA Football game, we will see Notre Dame at Clemson.
Both Notre Dame and Clemson are undefeated but this was a really special campaign for the Fighting Irish. The team doesn’t have the Alabama or Clemson talent but somehow managed to get to the postseason. QB Ian Brooks has enough skills, in order to cause problems for the Tigers’ elite defense and the Fighting Irish defense is good enough to keep them in the games. The team finished the season with a reputable comeback win over USC.
Trevor Lawrence had the tough job ahead of him to take the starting QB place away from the veteran Kelly Bryant. He had a great freshman season as he finished with 2606 passing yards with 24 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions. He had big help from the running game which was being led by Travis Etienne who finished with 1463 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns.
Clemson didn’t have much trouble in the regular season, except for one game where they won by only 4 points. Notre Dame still hasn’t convinced us that the team deserves this postseason spot more than Michigan or Ohio State. They are just there because they finished undefeated with an easier schedule. I believe that Clemson will easily get the job done and face Alabama in a much-anticipated title game.
