The action begins at 8PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Louisville Cardinals host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business, has the Notre Dame Fighting Irish favored by -18 points with the over under line set at 54 ½ points.

Notre Dame comes off a successful 2018 campaign as the team finished their regular season with a perfect 12-0 record. They won four of their final five regular season games by double digits with the lone exception coming in a 24-17 win at USC in the finale prior to their playoff appearance. Fighting Irish couldn’t handle the speed and strength of the Clemson Tigers in their semifinal playoff dropping a 30-3 decision in the Cotton Bowl. Notre Dame returns seven starters to their offense and six to the defense. Returning at quarterback is junior Ian Book who won the job in 2018 behind solid play. He led a Fighting Irish offense that averaged 31 points and 257 yards passing with a 64.1% completion percentage. The run game generated 4.4 yards per rush which was down from the 2017 numbers of 6.3 yards per attempt. They are inexperienced in the front seven breaking in two first year starters on the defensive line and linebacker positions.

Louisville comes off a disappointing 2-10 campaign. Head coach Scott Satterfield makes his coaching debut with the Cardinals with six starters returning on offense and ten to the defense. The offense saw a huge decline in 2018 scoring only 19.8 points and 353 yards per game. That was 19 points and 190 yards fewer than the previous season. Defense also went south for Louisville giving up 44 points and 484 yards per game last season. Junior quarterback Jawon Pass returns for his junior season. He does return many playmakers in the passing and running game but three first year starters on the offensive line. Pass struggled in his freshman campaign completing only 54% of his throws with eight touchdowns and twelve interceptions.
