Purdue 13 @ Notre Dame 27 | 09/18 | 6:30 PM UTC
Notre Dame -7
ANALYSIS: I think there's a realistic chance this game ends in a push, but the spread is up to 7.5 at most other books so I'll take a shot the Irish can win by at least 8. Purdue did lose its top running back, Zander Horvath, a third-team All-Big Ten selection in 2020, for 4-8 weeks due to an injury suffered last week against UConn. The Boilers have played an easy schedule so far vs. Oregon State and UConn, while the Irish have been pushed to the limit by Florida State and Toledo. The Irish have won their last seven games against the Boilermakers, keeping the Shillelagh Trophy on campus since the 2008 season.
