Notre Dame remained No. 2 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings in the second release from the committee.
Notre Dame is coming off a 31-17 road victory over North Carolina, who ranked 19th in last week's ranking. The Tar Heels actually moved up two spots to 17th after its loss to Notre Dame. That certainly helps Notre Dame's resume should the Tar Heels continue to win.
Notre Dame has clinched a spot in the ACC Championship game, and if No. 3 Clemson beats Virginia Tech this weekend the Tigers will clinch their rematch against the Irish.
