Notre Dame Fighting Irish VS Cincinnati Bearcats Staff Picks

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 4-0 after their 4th quarter explosion against Wisconsin, and are looking for real respect for the first time this season with a top 10 Cincinnati Bearcats team coming to South Bend. The Irish are home underdogs to the Bearcats, and the amount of trash talk coming out of the Queen City is quite remarkable — like they’ve done anything this year (or last year).

It’s week 5!

The One Foot Down staff is just as excited as all of you, and of course we have the staff picks again this year for a big handful of games from all over the country. This week we have 11 different matchups on the slate:

Notre Dame VS Cincinnati
Arkansas Razorbacks VS Georgia Bulldogs
Michigan Wolverines VS Wisconsin Badgers
Ole Miss Rebels VS Alabama Crimson Tide
Oklahoma Sooners VS Kansas State Wildcats
Baylor Bears VS Oklahoma State Cowboys
Boston College Eagles VS Clemson Tigers
Indiana Hoosiers VS Penn State Nittany Lions
Arizona State Sun Devils VS UCLA Bruins
Iowa Hawkeyes VS Maryland Terrapins
Louisville Cardinals VS Wake Forest Demon Deacons

We are once again using Tallysight this year as a staff, but I do encourage all of you to play along in the comments below (you don’t have to pick all the games BUT DO IT).
