TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage:

TheSpread.com betting matchup has this as an even matchup. But we like Hawaii to win in their own backyard, especially considering their success over the past month and Notre Dame’s struggles in bowl games over the years. We also lean towards the over, although we have a better read on Hawaii, who should have no problems scoring on a below average defense. We predict Hawaii over Notre Dame, 30-27.
