This one isn’t too difficult to break down on each side: Can Notre Dame stop Brandon Hatfield? Hatfield has 510 yards rushing and 7 TD in four games, averaging close to nine yards per carry. He was almost literally the saving grace against Tucson Marana in a 32-29 OT win last week for the Broncos. Russell Corriveau also has made plays with the passing game (56 percent completion, 3 TD, 0 INT) and the INT stat is most important with what Mike De La Torre’s team wants to do (run the ball and play defense). Can Poston Butte stop Jordan Schlueter in all facets of the game, as the three-way threat (offense, defense, special teams) is the heart of Notre Dame? The Saints are reeling a bit after being hammered by Desert Mountain (45-3) and Peoria Liberty (51-33) in consecutive weeks, and turnovers haven’t helped a struggling defense at times either. This is a close call because both are good at what they do (running the ball to set up the passing game), but Notre Dame’s time for a win has arrived, albeit in a good one.

Prediction: Notre Dame 24, Poston Butte 17
