Not many people are more familiar with both Notre Dame and Northwestern than Zak Kustok.

The former quarterback left the Irish program in 1998 and went on to set multiple school records for the Wildcats during his three seasons in Evanston, Ill. That's why we invited him to be on this week's "Pod of Gold" podcast.

On the show, Zak discussed his experiences with both programs, the challenge of transferring as a quarterback and the play of Irish QB Ian Book and Wildcat QB Clayton Thorson (:31).

Zak sticks around for the “Place Your Bets” segment to offer predictions for Saturday's game and beyond. (21:14).

Then Tyler and Eric provide the latest edition of “Keeping up with the Joneses” (30:30), nominate freshman wide receiver Kevin Austin Jr. for “Punctuation Mark of the Week” (32:27), and answer questions from Twitter (34:26).

"Pod of Gold" can now be listened to in a number of different places. The audio file can be found at the end of this story. It should appear on the various podcast platforms soon after being uploaded here.
