What to watch: Week 12 vs. Wake
By Matt Fortuna
Here's what to keep an eye on Saturday as the Irish look to improve to 11-0.
1. Emotions aplenty. Saturday is Senior Day, in case you missed that announcement. Expect this pregame ceremony to be more emotional than most, particularly when program-changer Manti Te'o walks through the tunnel, as this was one of the moments he had said he came back for.
2. A full Everett Golson home performance. Golson has missed all or parts of every home game because of injury or production. That changes in the Irish's home finale, as he'll lead the team from start to finish against the Deacs.
3. Ball distribution early. Six different players took the ball from Everett Golson on the Irish's first six plays of their latest home game. Expect plenty of players to get involved with the offense early, especially with DaVaris Daniels out. Daniel Smith, John Goodman and Chris Brown figure to get more touches.
