ESPN's SP+ predicts final score of Notre Dame-Clemson contest
ESPN’s SP+ has published its score prediction for Notre Dame’s Week 10 contest against Clemson.
The Fighting Irish and Tigers appear to be going in opposite directions. Notre Dame has won back-to-back games in blowout fashion over USC and Pittsburgh. Clemson, on the other hand, has lost back-to-back contests to Miami and NC State entering this matchup.
SP+ is predicting a final score of 27-22 in favor of Notre Dame.
That’s roughly in-line with Vegas’ expectation for this game. Notre Dame is favored on the road in Death Valley this weekend. This is the second time this season that Clemson has been a home underdog.
Notre Dame is still in the mix to earn a New Year’s Six bowl invitation this season if it wins out. After facing Clemson, Notre Dame’s final two games of the season are against Stanford and Wake Forest.
Clemson is 4-4 on the year for the first time since 2010. The Tigers will be looking to stay above .500 this weekend and get one stop closer to bowl eligibility.
Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
