Terence's Take: Here's how Notre Dame Wins

Will Clemson clobber the Fighting Irish in the Cotton Bowl? Will Notre Dame shock the Tigers? The latter and here's why.

Terence's Take is available on iTunes and Spotify.

So it comes down to this: No. 3 Notre Dame versus No. 2 Clemson Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Dallas during the Cotton Bowl. They'll battle in the first of two semifinal games of the College Football Playoff, and then No. 1 Alabama will meet No. 4 Oklahoma later that night in Miami during the Orange Bowl.

The winners will advance on Monday, January 7 in Santa Clara, Calif. for the national championship.

Now that we got that out of the way . . .

I'm covering the game in Dallas Saturday, and I'll watch Notre Dame, well, um, you'll have to listen to the podcast. I have my thoughts on whether the Fighting Irish can survive as two-touchdown underdogs against a Clemson team that nearly is as good as it gets.
