After starting the season off the AP poll altogether, Notre Dame has done everything in their power to weasel up the list. Now ranked No. 7, they’ve completely defied the perception that the heralded program is consistently overrated. Underrated for a change, the Irish have some of the most exciting college football odds in the sportsbook.
Quarterback Everett Golson has been the man on campus so far this season, coupled with the triple rushing threat of Theo Riddick, Cierre Wood and George Atkinson III, but the real asset the Fighting Irish will look to milk on the weekend is their elite level defense.
Lining up against them in South Bend this Saturday, however, is a team whose future has been equally hard to predict. The Cardinal shook the college football betting world when they knocked off No. 2 USC in Week 2, but followed it up with a loss to unranked Washington. Now ranked No. 17, their odds of winning the BCS are as much a mystery as ever.
