What to watch for: Can Miami’s defense slow down Notre Dame’s rushing attack?
The Irish have the third best rushing attack in the country, which is very impressive. The Hurricanes have struggled to stop the run but did very good against Virginia Tech last week. If the Hurricanes can’t stop the Irish rushing attack, they are going to have a hard time winning this game.
