Obviously, Pittsburgh has the edge here. Notre Dame certainly isn’t the air-it-out and spread style team that the Ducks are. Pittsburgh, behind the cannon of starting quarterback Justin Herbert, has the second most passing yards in the conference at a shade over 300.
NCAA College Football 2018 Game:
Pittsburgh once again has the numbers advantage in this phase of the game. Behind a constantly rotating committee of running backs, Pittsburgh can give defenses a myriad of looks on the ground game. Notre Dame, on the other hand, is another good running team. I know they average less yards than Pittsburgh, but they can’t be taken for granted — quarterback Chase Garbers included. You have to remember, this team has played overall stiffer competition than the Ducks.
It’s no secret that Pittsburgh has the more potent offense of the two. With certain future Sunday regular Justin Herbert taking snaps, and CJ Verdell and Tony Brooks-James behind him, and Dillon Mitchell out wide, this Pittsburgh offense has a plethora of weapons — enough to give any team fits on defense. If Pittsburgh is firing on all cylinders, the Cal offense will have a tough time keeping up.
Here’s where the number begin to favor the Irish. Their secondary has been sturdy and reliable thus far, but hasn’t faced a passer as elite as Herbert. Pittsburgh’s secondary, on the other hand, has been a rather disappointing aspect of the squad. They cannot let Garbers get comfortable today.
