A real stink bomb of a game. Notre Dame turned the ball over five times, three times in the red zone, and allowed several huge plays to the generally inept Boston College offense. (Allowing a touchdown in the last few seconds also hurt by making the game seem close, which it wasn't.) This near-choke may endanger Notre Dame's chances of making the year-end playoff, but fortunately they received two bits of very good news today. First, #3 Ohio State lost to Michigan State, while #6 Oklahoma State (which had decent chances to leapfrog Notre Dame) lost to Baylor. We'll see when the new rankings comes out on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the season isn't over: Notre Dame has one game left, while most of their rivals have two.
Record so far: 10-1
Next victim: #11 Stanford
