Irish look to bounce back against Rutgers

The Irish who are currently 4th in the conference, but are tied in the loss column with the rest of the teams.  After Georgetown's loss the top 4 Big East standings look like this.
1. Georgetown- 10-3
2. Louisville- 10-3
3. Connecticut- 9-3
4. Notre Dame-  8-3

As long as the Irish keep winning they will be able to make a run for first in the Big East.  Sunday's contest should prove successful for the Irish.  Rutgers is obviously struggling this year at 2-11 in conference play.  The RAC is a tough place to play, however I find it hard to imagine how a crowd can be that pumped up with the team so far behind.  

The Irish should come out hungry.  The last loss will still be fresh on their minds and it will fuel their momentum. 

Key to the Game- Harangody.  Get it to the big man and the Irish should get the win.
