It's Senior Day for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, who are playing their third straight opponent from the Atlantic Coast Conference. This time it's the rival Boston College Eagles, who are coming off an unspectacular win over NC State on Nov. 12.
The Irish offense will try to keep rolling against a Boston College defense that has been shaky at times this season, though they were very good in beating the Wolfpack last week. Linebacker Luke Kuechly is the big name on the BC defense--he's a sure tackler who always seems to be around the football.
BC's offense had some success last week with the wildcat offense and designed quarterback runs, and that is something the Irish will have to keep an eye on.
A win on Saturday would be Notre Dame's third in a row over an ACC school and fourth in a row overall.
