The wins keep piling up for No. 5 Notre Dame (6-0). After beating another ranked team at Virginia Tech, the Irish return home this week to host Pittsburgh (3-3).

With Notre Dame's defense continuing to make plays, Tyler James and Eric Hansen called up a former Irish playmaker for this week's episode of "Pod of Gold" — safety Tom Zbikowski.

On the podcast, "Zibby" shares his thoughts on the current Notre Dame team, the challenges of playing safety in college football now, dealing with quarterback competitions, the craziest road venue he played in during his Irish career and more (:35).

Zibby sticks around for the “Place Your Bets” segment to offer predictions for Saturday’s Notre Dame-Pittsburgh game (17:57).

Then Tyler and Eric provide the latest edition of “Keeping up with the Joneses” (22:15), nominate tight end Alizé Mack for “Punctuation Mark of the Week” (25:11), and answer questions from Twitter (27:37).
