Notre Dame’s championship path takes them to Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, MA, the site for this 2012 NCAA football predictions Saturday week 11 game between the (9-0, Road: 2-0) Fighting Irish [-19] and the (2-7, Home: 2-2) Boston College Eagles [+19].
This lopsided affair is scheduled to kickoff Saturday night at 8 PM ET and it’ll be broadcast live on NBC Sports. As you can see, Notre Dame is listed as -19 point favorites over BC, and the OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 47.5 points.
With three games remaining in the regular season and ranked fourth in the nation, it would appear obvious that the Irish would have to run the table to earn a potential date with Alabama in the BCS National Title game. While this game against Boston College doesn’t scare anyone, it is very important in terms of the big picture.
Notre Dame has BC and Wake Forest, before it closes out the season against a very dangerous team in the USC Trojans. That makes this week and next week’s games that much more important, as the season finale against SC is guaranteed to be a war. For this 2012 NCAA football predictions for Saturday’s week 11, I think it’s safe to take the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at -19 points.
Speaking of SC, the Trojans’ disappointing season could still at least end with a Pac-12 Conference title. At the present time, Matt Barkley & Co. find themselves in second place in the South Division, trailing only the UCLA Bruins. Sign up to receive NCAA expert football picks right now!
The good news is that there are three games still remaining in SC’s schedule, one which will be against their Southern Cal rivals. But before that game next week, week 11 is also crucial for the (6-3, Pac-12: 4-3) Trojans [-9], as they take on the (5-4, Pac-12: 3-3) Arizona State Sun Devils [+9] this Saturday. College football betting odds makers set the O/U for that game is set at a combined total of 65.5 points, so it should be a barnburner!
