In a game from NCAAF Week 5, we will see Stanford Cardinal at Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
What can be said about Notre Dame is that they finally have their quarterback. Ian Book has a very high ceiling and he showed it last week against Wake Forest. Book completed 25 out of his 34 passes which was good for 325 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. With the emergence of Ian Book, their running back Dexter Williams will surely benefit from the situation.
Stanford knows that this will not be an easy match-up. Stanford has one of the best pass rushers in the country and they will have to be at their best, in order to put the pressure on the Notre Dame’s young quarterback. With 13 sacks this year, this group already showed that they know how to get to the opposition’s quarterback.
Notre Dame have been made the favorites to win this game because of their improvement on offense. Dexter Williams is also returning and he can help a lot if he is in good form. However, Stanford are a very solid side that already showed that they can play under pressure when they got by the San Diego State and when their defense shut down USC.
