Game of the Week
Week 10
8-0 Notre Dame is hosting 6-2 Penn in a full tilt contest this week. The National Championship picture is pretty clear but a loss here could make for an interesting situation. Notre Dame has two games left versus Washington and Penn. If the Irish can win these two games they are in the national championship. If Notre Dame loses just one of these two contests, the only team that can possibly unseat them is Slippery Rock. St Thomas is the only other one loss team in the nation, but the Tommies would need to go through Louisville in the Midhorn in order to get to the National Title, Notre Dame would not be effected because two teams from the same conference cannot play in a bowl game together.

So with the implications of a National Title on the line for Notre Dame, this game would all but clinch a spot if won. Winning the game could be a tough task against a hungry Penn squad with a highly efficient passing attack. Since joining the ECC however, Coach Tadaos has had a 2-0 record versus Penn, winning the last two contests by 10 and 7 points respectively. On top of the record against the Quakers, the Irish have put together nice little win streak the last two seasons. Coach Tadaos leads active TCS coaches and has now won 16 straight games in TCS. During that streak they have won with solid defense (4th ranked) and managing the game on offense (7th ranked).

Penn is looking to get its first win versus Notre Dame since season 8. If there is anyone who matches up well with the Irish it is the Quakers. The Quakers have allowed less total yards per game than the Irish, and are ranked 10th in offense. The one facet of offense you will have to watch for is the passing attack led by Denver Hendrix. Hendrix now has 20 touchdowns on the season, which leads TCS this season.

What to watch for: Penn averages 210 passing yards a game and Notre Dame only allows 103 yards on average.
