The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are looking to make some noise to end the college football season. They aren’t going to go to the College Football Playoff but they can still make an impression on the country going into 2023. They already are up to number 15 in the College Football Playoff rankings.
They have one more game before Bowl Season and it is against their biggest rival USC. This is going to be one of the marquee games in the nation because of the impact it can have on the entire playoff ranking.
USC is currently ranked number six in the nation by the committee and there is a chance that they do make it to the final four event. In order for that to happen, they need a few things to go their way including this win over the Fighting Irish.
Of course, Notre Dame knows that and is going to do what it can in order to play spoiler. Anyone in any sport would want to keep their biggest rival from advancing if they can. After the year that they’ve had, it sure would be fun to watch.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a chance to make some noise this week.
The Irish started the season 3-3. They opened with a loss to Ohio State which is understandable but the following loss to Marshall is what did them in as they started 0-2. They do have a legit win against Clemson which might have ruined their season so they believe in themselves.
It wasn’t a great start for Marcus Freeman in his NCAA coaching debut but his team has rebounded nicely. After it is all said and done, he will probably look back at this year as a really nice learning experience. There is still a long way to go in order to become elite again.
Getting a win over USC would be so much fun. You know that some of the other bubble teams like TCU, Alabama, and LSU are hoping for it as well. It won’t be easy at all but as mentioned before, this team has what it takes to get it done if they stick to their game plan all game long.
