The Fighting Irish come into this game ranked #9 in the country with their eyes set on a National Championship. They play a difficult schedule but this is not one of those games. Louisville comes into 2019 after just winning 2 games in 2018. They will be improved but their fans may not see that in terms of wins just yet. Head Coach Scott Satterfield will have them competitive but for this game he doesn't have the players to keep up. Brian Kelly and his staff have recruited very well in recent years and it is starting to show as the Irish reload instead of rebuild. They did lose talent off of last years squad but return QB Ian Book who is expected to have a monster year. He will be throwing to a fantastic WR in Chase Claypool. The backfield is strong and lead by Jafar Armstrong. Defensively the Irish have one of the best D-Lines in all of college football. I expect Okwara, Hayes, and Kareem to cause all sorts of problems for the Ville offense. The emotion of this game might keep it close for a quarter but the Irish are too strong and win big.
