The Notre Dame Fighting Irish had a really good season but Alabama was just too good.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football team had a great season. It was a strange year for college football because of COVID-19. The Irish were forced to join the ACC and be a part of their conference this year and play a full ACC schedule. It was a bit weird at first but they handled it very well. In fact, a regular-season win over the Clemson Tigers was the highlight of the year and they finished off the regular season undefeated.
In the ACC Championship game, they were beaten badly by Clemson in the rematch. It wasn’t a true representation of Notre Dame Football but it was just a bad game. Because of how good they were all season long, however, the committee decided to rank them as the fourth seed in the 2020-21 College Football Playoff.
