Irish take on Washington at home

This Saturday, Notre Dame will take on Jake Locker and his somewhat inconsistent Washington football team. The Irish are a little more healthy than last week so expect more from Jimmy Clausen and Armando Allen; though you will still probably see Dayne Crist at times because Jimmy's turf toeis still hurting him. Expect to also see that Wildcat offense; however, I'm guessing Allen will be taking the snaps when in wildcat instead of Golden Tate. But only because Allen was hurt, I would like to see Golden take some snaps after seeing how effective he was in that formation last week.

This week I am very curious to see what Tenuta does with the defense against a moblie quarterback in Jake Locker. Tenuta let up big numbers to Forcier but that was probably a byproduct of Rich Rodriguez' spread offense. Weis and Tenuta said they expect to see more of freshman Manti Te'o this week and throughout the rest of the season. Teo's speed in pursuit should  very helpful to Tenuta Jake Locker when it comes to containing locker and limiting gains when he does move outside the pocket.
