Everyone recalls the Bulldogs epic win at Notre Dame Stadium two years ago. And that team was not as good as the one that will take the field on Saturday night. UGA is college football’s third superpower.

Now Notre Dame is 2-0 straight up, 1-1 against the odds, and 1-1 with totals. Last week the Fighting Irish mauled New Mexico 66-14 as 45-point chalks. Namely, Ian Book has been shown improvement over what was an impressive 2018 season. Head coach Brian Kelly needed more time than expected but the program is finally stocked with quality depth. Of great concern is a rushing defense that has not shown the ability to stop teams consistently thus far.
