OUR PREDICTION: The Fighting Irish are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games following three or more consecutive home games and are 1-4 against the number in their last five road games when taking on an opponent with a winning home record. The Panthers, meanwhile, are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games following an ATS loss and if Michael Young and Jamel Artis are both on their games this afternoon, I like Pittsburgh to eek out a victory in front of its home crowd.
