#12 Clemson is a 1.5 point favorite against Notre Dame according to Vegas odds on Friday afternoon for Saturday's 8 p.m. contest on ESPN at Memorial Stadium.

However, all four Athlon blog writers have picked Notre Dame over Clemson on Saturday night:

Steven Lassan 27-24 ND
Mitch Light 27-24 ND
David Fox 35-21 ND
Braden Gall 30-27 ND

"Both teams have been tested this year, but Saturday night’s game is each program’s toughest opponent so far in 2015," Athlon Sports stated. "Will the injuries finally catch up to Notre Dame? Or is Clemson’s rebuilding effort still a work in progress? Of course, there’s the weather element to consider. If conditions are an issue, an edge has to go to the Fighting Irish with its offensive line and running back C.J. Prosise. Even if conditions aren’t an issue, the Tigers still have question marks about the play in the trenches against Notre Dame’s offensive and defensive lines. Clemson has the edge at quarterback, but the Fighting Irish’s defense and strength up front on offense will be the difference."

ESPN's FPI gives the Tigers a 54% chance to win against the Irish.
