When the Boston College Eagles come to South Bend this week the Fighting Irish have a lot to play for. If Notre Dame can finish 9-3 and rise as high as No. 14 in the BCS standings it is possible they can still play in a lucrative BCS bowl this season. A win over Stanford next week would help their chances greatly, but first they must hold serve at home against Boston College. SB Nation’s odds partner Oddshark sees the Irish as a strong favorite this week, giving them a 24.5 point edge at home:While the Irish have won each of their last two meetings against the Eagles (1-1 ATS), they’d lost the previous six and are 3-7 SU in their last 10 against Boston College.Boston College has had a rough season, but still managed to win last week against North Carolina State despite gaining only three yards in the second half.
