The Miami Hurricanes travel to Soldier Field in Chicago to take on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

On Saturday, the No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will take on the Miami Hurricanes in Chicago at Soldier Field. The Hurricanes are coming off a huge 44-37 victory over the N.C. State Wolfpack and a record passing performance by quarterback Stephen Morris.

Morris completed 26-of-49 passes against N.C. State and racked up 566 yards (an ACC record) and five touchdowns in the game. Notre Dame is coming off a bye week, with its last game being in a 13-6 defensive struggle over the Michigan Wolverines in Week 4. But the biggest question in this contest will be if Notre Dame can slow down Miami's high-powered offense?

The Hurricanes have scored at least 40 points in four of its five games, and it seems unlikely that Notre Dame will be able to survive a shootout with Miami. The Irish have scored no more than 20 points in their last three games. If Miami can force Notre Dame to play at its pace, it should have a very good chance to win this game.
