Notre Dame Fighting Irish Vs. Stanford Cardinal: Irish Trying For Upset Against Andrew Luck And Stanford

Notre Dame is preparing for a big game against Stanford.

Following a bit of a sluggish performance against Boston College--but a win nonetheless--the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are preparing for a tough road game against Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal.

Notre Dame has won four consecutive games and would love to cap off their regular season with a win against a top 10 team, while Stanford its second straight one-loss regular season. The Irish will have to slow the Cardinal offense, which is averaging 45 points 485.6 total yards this season. The offense ranks in the top 10 nationally in both of those categories. Heisman Trophy candidate Andrew Luck has completed over 70% of his passes for 2,937 yards and 31 touchdowns.

Notre Dame has the offense to keep them in the game, and Stanford's defense has appeared vulnerable at times this season. Although the Irish mustered up just 16 points against Boston College, they are averaging 32 points per game.

Stanford opened as 6-1/2 point favorites.
