    This may be a high scoring game. Cathedral RB going to be tough to bring down. Looking forward to watching game, should be good measuring stick for the Tigers.

    I'll go with the Tigers in this one. Hopefully, the Tigers can wear down Cathedral with their depth, and rather large OL. X's defense seemed a little shaky reading through the updates.

    Cathedral has pretty good jr QB, right?

    More tidbits: The first meeting between the Irish and the Tigers since 1929. Cathedral played St. Xavier played eight times in the 1920s with the all-time series tied 4-4 from Cathedral website.

    I will try to find some information about him. Indy Star will post later this week. Cathedral Facebook page gives no information regarding individual players.

    Cathedrals roster makes X look small.

    Cathedral starting sophmore QB. RB going to Notre Dame, Center going to Michigan, and Linebackers comitted to Boston College and Toledo. Talented team!

    Cathedral was always one of the toughest games on Trinity's schedule when they played and the games were hard fought. They are well coached and don't beat themselves. I think I'll give X a slight edge because of the emotional boost of christening their new field but wouldn't be shocked if Cathedral goes home with a win.

    Good read...so they have some "dudes"; probably good for X they're meeting them early.
