BYU Cougars vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish 10/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The #16 BYU Cougars will go against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in NCAAF action in Allegiant Stadium, NV, on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at 7:30 PM ET.


The BYU Cougars are 4-1 thus far, with their lone setback coming on the road versus Oregon by a score of 40-21. Last week, BYU hosted Utah State and had a 25.5-point advantage going into the game, but they didn’t exactly perform like a team that was heavily favored.


Yes, BYU prevailed, but only by 12 points and with a meager seven-yard advantage against the Aggies. The Cougars were anticipating this match.


Nevertheless, this is a highly dangerous squad, and they will want to send a message by crushing a mediocre Notre Dame club.


The Cougars’ defense was average overall, allowing 26.4 points per game and ranking 72nd in points surrendered, but they are also 18th against the pass and 41st in total yards permitted.


They rank 92nd in run defense, yet the Aggies outran them by 205 yards. The Irish are a superior running squad than a throwing team, so that may be a problem in this situation.


  • The Brigham Young Cougars are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Brigham Young’s last 7 outings. 
  • The BYU Cougars are 9-2 SU in their last 11 matches.

BYU Cougars vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish Predictions 10/8/2022


The Notre Dame Fighting Irish leveled their season record at 2-2 after a 0-2 start with victories over California and North Carolina.


The Irish beat North Carolina by a score of 45-32 a couple of weeks ago despite being three-point underdogs and taking an early lead of 38-14.


A victory in this game will at least temporarily allay suspicions that the Irish may struggle to even qualify for a bowl game this year.


This year, the Irish’s defense was their strength, although they did struggle against the Pass vs. the Heels. The BYU pass game will be tested by the Notre Dame secondary, which was regarded as one of the best in the country after the Heels’ 301-yard passing attack on them.


Given that Marcus Freeman has a solid secondary and is a defensive-minded coach, it is a little surprising that Notre Dame is now ranked 53rd in the country against the pass.


  • The Notre Dame Fighting Irish is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 matches. 
  • Notre Dame is 13-4 SU in their last 17 contests. 
  • The Fighting Irish is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Brigham Young.

#16 BYU Cougars vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The NCAAF pick for this game is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Although it was a home game, BYU did defeat Baylor this season. However, they also suffered an away loss of 21 points against Oregon.


In this game against a Notre Dame club that appeared to finally find its feet, expect them to struggle. A strong Irish running attack should have a strong performance against a BYU team that allowed Utah State to run on them for 205 yards last week.


Drey Pyne is starting to feel comfortable as a quarterback. Although Notre Dame’s defense was strong generally and will get stronger as the season progresses, the BYU attack was quite effective.


In terms of defense, Notre Dame has a clear advantage against BYU because they allow just 24.0 points per game overall, including 21.5 points per game at home.


Last but not least, BYU is 1-5 ATS in their previous 6 games following a straight-up victory while the Irish are 21-10 ATS in their last 31 matches following a bye week. This one is a TD win for Notre Dame. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will win to a predicted score of 28-21.
