COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Notre Dame is 3-1 ATS L4 in series and 9-3 ATS L12 in neutral site games. This game is being played in Chicago’s Soldier Field, though it might as well be a home game for the Irish. These teams used to play in the late eighties, when both were dominant programs (Catholics vs. Convicts). This time, the ninth-ranked Irish appear to be back to their old ways as they are led by a balanced offense and quality defense. They are the only FBS team not to have trailed in a game. They were idle last week after beating #18 Michigan, 13-6 on Sept.22. Their defense forced six turnovers. Miami did beat NC State last week, 44-37, as Stephen Morris threw for a school and ACC-record 56 yards. But Miami will be without senior OL Bob Jones (foot), who anchors the line.
