Notre Dame continued to move up in the College Football Playoff rankings, with the 10-1 Fighting Irish coming in at No. 6 in the latest edition. The Irish jumped up after a 55-0 beatdown victory over Georgia Tech and was aided by losses to last week's No. 3 (Oregon) and No. 7 (Michigan State).
Notre Dame is knocking on the door of the playoff, with No. 2 Ohio State (10-1) and No. 5 Michigan (10-1) squaring off this weekend, and a pending matchup between No. 1 Georgia (11-0) and No. 3 Alabama (10-1) coming up in the SEC Championship.
The Irish still need a little bit of help but the last three weeks of chaos and upsets has Notre Dame on the verge of its third playoff appearance in four seasons, and second straight berth.
