With Gottfried getting fired, there is a chance N.C. State could have an emotionally uplifting performance, but then again, the team wasn’t doing that before he was fired so why should that change now? Notre Dame is rolling right now while the Wolfpack have lost their last three by at least 24 points. Go with the Irish to keep rolling.
