Michigan State (3-0) at Notre Dame (2-1) (3:30 p.m. ET, on NBC)
Line: Notre Dame -5 (Bovada)
Last Meeting: 2012: 20-3 ND
3 Players to Watch:
1) Connor Cook (QB, MSU):Cook will get his third career start this week against Notre Dame. Last week he finished 15 for 22 for 202 yards and 4 touchdowns. In response, coach Dantonio has stated that Cook will be the “guy” from now on. Sure Connor looked good against Youngstown State, but Notre Dame will be a real test. It will be interesting to see how he can run the offense in his first true road start. I am not very confident in him but we will see how he responds to the tough environment in South Bend.
2) DaVaris Daniels(WR, ND): Daniels has had a hot start to the new season and exploded with 8 receptions for 167 yards and two touchdowns in Notre Dame’s win last week against Purdue. DaVaris has already accumulated 299 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns throughout the first three games. Listed at 6’2” and weighing 203 lbs., Daniels is not a small receiver and will be an interesting match for Darqueze Dennard and the MSU secondary. If Tommy Rees can find Daniels often, Notre Dame may pull away quickly.no comments
