If your going with a shutout then it has to be 38-0
That ND-Pitt game was one of the worst ref'd games I've ever seen. I still can't believe the bs pass interference they called on 4th down against Pitt.

Ugh, and don't get me started about the Stanford game and how Stanford actually scored twice on that "goal line stand"...
I can tell you that ND last year was 2nd worst undefeated team I've ever seen right behind 2012 Ohio.
I think overall ND is a little better team with more impact players. But for some reason I think we win this one by double digits. Better QB play and playing in AA at night will be the difference.
I was reading a website that recapped their season and said that their schedule was much easier than people were making it out to be. They should of lost to Stanford, Pitt, and then Barkley blew out his shoulder right before they had to play them.
Yup, just another ref aided win for ND
It was easier than some of their past schedules, but I wouldn't call it easy. A lot of teams outside of the SEC have a schedule that could be deemed easy. It certainly was nowhere near as easy as OSU's.
We all knew that whoever won the SEC title was going to eviscerate ND in the national title game. Same would've happened to OSU.
Anyways, I think we beat ND. I'm pretty conservative when it comes to predictions, and I think we could have some trouble moving the ball against them with such an inexperienced interior line. I don't see any way their offense scores more than 14, though, and Gardner will get it done in the fourth quarter.
That's the way I see it
Thought they had a pretty tough schedule. They were lucky as hell though. Oh well even they are due for one good season each decade
I wouldn't call it easy, however, it was extremely comparable to Michigan's schedule. Michigan played 3 nationally elite teams (Bama, Notre Dame, Ohio) and ND played 3 elite teams to a lesser extent (Bama, Stanford, Oklahoma). After that, there were a bunch of mid-level bowl teams for ND (Navy wasn't very good last year, Purdue, MSU, Miami was 7-5 in a bad conference, BYU was ok, Pittsburgh and USC was Average at best).
