Notre Dame (2-9)
The Irish survived the "Duke Super Bowl," burying Duke 28-7 for their first win since an Oct. 6 trip to UCLA. Notre Dame's offensive line was still unable to deliver a sack-free performance, however, as freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen was taken down twice by the Blue Devils. The Irish remain ranked dead last in the nation in sacks allowed; they've given up 51 on the season, for a horrific average of 4.6 per game.
100 106
Tulane (4-7)
Matt Forte needs to close strong in the national rushing race. The Green Wave senior currently has a 5.7-yards-per-game lead on UCF's Kevin Smith, and each player has one game left in the regular season. Forte kept hold on the top spot by running for 195 yards (as well as five touchdowns) in a 45-31 win over Rice on Saturday, and will face off against East Carolina in his finale. The Pirates rank 54th nationally in run defense. Meanwhile, Smith's last opponent, UTEP, ranks 100th.
