College Football Week 11: #4 Notre Dame At Boston College
|For much of last Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh, it looked like Notre Dame might succumb to a “letdown.” But Brian Kelly’s team rallied late to stay unbeaten. The Irish have five wins by seven points of fewer.||Coaching||No coach’s seat is hotter than Frank Spaziani’s, according to a website that specializes in that sort of thing. BC is 2-7 with a win over FCS Maine and a Maryland team starting a fourth-string quarterback. Only one of the Eagles’ losses was within one possession.|
|The Irish offense was nonexistent for most of last week, but Everett Golson made some critical plays with his arm and leg late in the game. He is still improving, and has a strong running game to rely on.||Offense||The Eagles rank 84th in yards per play, thanks a rushing offense that is third worst in the country.|
|The Irish defense stepped up in a major way with the game on the line last week, giving its offense a chance to come back by shutting out the Panthers in the fourth quarter and holding them to six points in three overtime possessions.||Defense||It is hard to imagine BC’s porous rush defense slowing Notre Dame’s ground attack.|
|ND had what could have been a season-crippling special teams gaffe last week—two players with the same jersey number were on the field at the same time during a Pitt field goal—but the referees didn’t notice. Kyle Brindza missed an extra point in the fourth quarter.||Special Teams||BC ranks in the top 40 in overall special teams play according to Football Outsiders.|
