The Otter Room’s Notre Dame-Wake Forest Predictions

Letdown prevention task force is a full go.

Taylor Seale – Notre Dame 45, Wake Forest 14 (Record: 7-0, ATS: 7-0)

“Elko knows this team and won’t let them score. Adams runs all over a quickly worn out defense to continue his Heisman campaign. Also, the “Better Know An Opponent” guy was way too confident.”

Ka Hin Lee – N/A (Record: 6-1, ATS: 3-4)

Mike O’Connor – Notre Dame: 56, Wake Forest 10 (Record: 5-2, ATS: 3-4)

“This ain’t no Exorcist. Demons don’t win. Disclaimer: I’ve never seen the Exorcist.”

Dan Bettencourt – Notre Dame 55, Wake Forest 13 (Record: 7-0, ATS: 6-1)

“Notre Dame puts Wake to sleep. Josh Adams tucks them in with a four touchdown game.”

Beau Dolan – Wake Forest 24, Notre Dame 21 (Record: 2-5, ATS: 1-6)

“They know it’s a trap game, so they pay attention, which makes them too comfortable and then makes it a trap game again. Trapception.” 

Joe Wirth – Notre Dame 35, Wake Forest 20 (Record 7-0, ATS: 5-2)

“Wake Forest is a better team than their 4-3 record would suggest. Mike Elko’s fingerprints are still on their defense and the Demon Deacons hung with a highly-ranked Notre Dame team two years ago in South Bend. People said last week was a potential letdown, but this week is the real threat. A slow start will make this game uncomfortable for Irish fans in the second half, before ND finally wears down Wake in the fourth quarter.”

Guest Picker: Tom O(r)liver – Notre Dame 42, Wake Forest 14

“Wake has a good senior QB who doesn’t turn the ball over, so they’ll get points early, but we’ll just wear them out and run it down their throats. Plus, their main receiver and leading tackler are hurt.”
