California has two wins in two games, and we might think it has been an easy ride so far; however, that’s not the case. They won by a score of 34-13 against UC Davis in the first week of activity, but the first half didn’t go well as they were held scoreless. They eventually recovered and scored in the following three quarters.
In their most recent performance, they defeated UNLV 20-14, starting with a great offensive game in the first quarter with two touchdowns. The team then added a field goal in the second quarter and another in the third quarter to round out their performance.
Betting on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish
- Regular season record: 0-2
- Spread: -10.5
- Moneyline: -375
- Over/Under: 40.5
This start of the season is not going in the best way for Notre Dame, as they have gotten off on the wrong foot, losing their first two games. They were unable to beat Ohio State despite being in charge of opening the scoring in the Week 1 game and ended up losing by a score of 21-10.
It seemed like they’d be able to recover from that loss to Marshall last week, but that was not the case, as they also suffered a painful 21-26 defeat. In the first quarter, neither of the two scored points.
Marshall took a 9-7 lead in the second period and extended it in the third. Notre Dame scored two touchdowns and a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter, but its opponent also scored two touchdowns.
California is second in the Pacific-12 and could be a favorite against another opponent, but not this time, since ndiana is expected to win for the first time.
Prediction: Notre Dame wins by a score of 22-17.
