Notre Dame pulled out a 12-7 victory in a Saturday snoozer against an underachieving Louisville team. Now the Irish will play against a defense that’s actually good on Saturday at Pittsburgh.

While the marquee matchup will be Notre Dame’s running game vs. Pittsburgh’s run defense, Tyler James and Eric Hansen wanted to keep the focus on the struggling Irish passing game. That’s why they invited former ND wide receiver Bobby Brown back onto the podcast.

On the show Brown discussed how the Irish can improve in the passing game, which wide receivers he'd like to see more of, the importance of chemistry off the field, how much blame belongs on QB Ian Book, if Notre Dame can compete for a title with only a strong running game and defense and more.

Then Tyler James and Eric Hansen previewed the Notre Dame-Pittsburgh game with predictions in Place Your Bets (22:59) and answered questions from Twitter (31:53).
