I expect them to score one TD, plus a FG or two. Based purely on their offensive performances year to date, and Alabama's defensive performances year to date, they should score about 10 points in this game.
No offense in 1A bogs down more often and kicks more FGs than does ND's. Oklahoma State is the only one with more FGs than ND in 12 games played. However, OK State scored 65 TDs with their 25 FGs. ND has scored 36 TDs and has kicked 24 FGs.
Ball State had 52 TDs and kicked 25 FGs in 13 games. Toledo scored 49 TDs and kicked 24 FGs in 13 games.
ND was pathetic in this regard. FWIW, Bama had 65 & 15 in 13 games.

This is the type of thread I expect during the week of a cupcake game, not the national championship. This is an ignorant question full of arrogance.

I wish I had a media credential I could share. I would pay $5 to watch someone ask coach that question.
I think they need to score at least 21 to have a chance. I don't know if they can get that many, but anyone who thinks they're not capable of it haven't watched much football this season.

Reason: Dude! Coach Saban would sooner die than tweet.
I like your confidence. But I find it difficult to believe that anybody who is an Alabama fan would come out and actually say something like this. Remember how the national press and the Miami homers talked about how Alabama didn't have a chance against the Hurricanes in 1992? We all know how that ended. Notre Dame didn't go undefeated on sheer luck. In this day and age, going undefeated is a real accomplishment. I don't care who you are or who you play. Never underestimate your opponent. I hope our players don't feel this way. I don't think our coaches will allow them to, but I don't like reading the "trash talk" coming from our fans.
Really? Why even ask this? ND is a well coached team and while I believe Bama will win…. but to ask if ND will score is just not practical.
