There will be plenty of points scored when Notre Dame and Syracuse meet at Yankee Stadium. Syracuse boasts the seventh-highest average in the country, and Notre Dame has thrived since turning to Ian Book at quarterback. Though he missed the clash against Florida State, Book is expected to start in this showdown. But his return won’t be enough for the Fighting Irish, who haven’t encountered an offense with a quarterback as versatile or productive as Eric Dungey. The first poor showing by Notre Dame’s defense all season will doom the Irish.
