Music City Bowl Preview Notre Dame (7-5) vs. No. 23 LSU (8-4)

To say Notre Dame faltered down the stretch would be an understatement, as they lost 5 of their last 6 games of the season including their last 4. However, 3 of those games came against top 25 teams. They now head to the Music City Bowl where the Irish are 7-point underdogs.

LSU won their season finale, but lost their previous 2 games, which cost them a better bowl game. However, they are favored in this game and have the nation's 3rd ranked defense.

This game is being held at a neutral site in Nashville, Tennessee.

In their last games of the regular season LSU beat Texas A&M 23-17 and Notre Dame lost to USC 49-14.

Notre Dame is 5-7 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 7-5 and LSU is 8-4 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 4-8.

Everett Golson leads the Notre Dame offense and while he passed for over 3,350 yards on the season the INT plagued him all season. In the first 3 games of the season he was not picked off, but then in all the other games he had at least 1 INT. William Fuller is the main WR that the Tigers and their 4th ranked pass defense has to worry about, as he has nearly twice as many receiving yards as the next WR for the Fighting Irish.

Tarean Folston is the lead RB for Notre Dame and while did not have a good game facing USC he did rush for over 100 yards in 4 of the last 6 games of the season. While the passing offense is the strength of the Irish they may want to run the ball more facing LSU and their 38th ranked run defense.

The Tigers are, pretty much, all about the run, as they only rank 116th in the nation in passing yards per game. However, when Anthony Jennings airs it out he makes it count with the 2 leading WR's for LSU averaging over 20 yards per catch.

LSU has a couple of solid RB's in Anthony Jennings, who rushed for 146 yards in the season finale against Texas A&M, and Terrence Magee, who each averaged over 5 yards per carry on the season. Notre Dame only ranks 62nd in the nation defending the run and 84th defending the pass.

Free Point Spread Pick

LSU did not beat a quality team by more than 6 points this season and that's only if you consider the Aggies in the quality ranking. Earlier in the season the Fighting Irish would have been a small favorite against the Tigers on a neutral field.
