Playoff Spot Potentially On The Line Between Notre Dame, Miami

Though a rivalry we do not get to see often, Notre Dame and Miami have their fair share of tumultuous history. Whether it be the famous Catholics vs Convicts game or the several times the two teams have come to literal blows, the Fighting Irish and Hurricanes have no love lost.

Shark Bites
  • Notre Dame is 3-0 SU and ATS in its last 3 games against Miami.
  • The total has gone UNDER in Miami’s last 6 games.
  • Miami rushed for 18 yards on 35 carries vs Notre Dame last season.

Notre Dame currently sits third in the rankings while Miami is seventh. In the turbulent world that is college football this season, the winner of this game will likely control its own destiny while the loser might be on the outside looking in.

Ever since being held to just 19 points against Georgia earlier this season, Notre Dame’s offense has been running at full speed. During the Irish’s current seven-game winning streak, they are averaging 43.4 points and 512.1 yards of offense per game. The rushing duo of Josh Adams and Brandon Wimbush has been nearly unstoppable with the two combining for 10 100-plus yard rushing games.

Maybe it is because of the stilted schedule or the lack of ranked opponents but Miami has been overlooked by many despite an 8-0 record. The offense has been rolling thanks to their explosiveness, as Miami averages 6.4 yards per play, the 19th-best in the country. Quarterback Malik Rosier has been great as a passer but showed he can also get it done with his feet last week vs Virginia Tech.
