Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Resume: 10-1, ACC runner-ups, 1-1 vs Clemson, won at UNC by 14.
Analysis: Aside from Clemson and UNC, they really have not beaten any team of merit.

Indiana v Ohio State

Ohio State Buckeyes

Resume: 6-0, Big Ten Champs.
Analysis: Only played six games in empty stadiums and none of their foes looked like stalwarts. Biggest win came against Indiana. Yes, Indiana.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 23 Texas A&M at Georgia

Texas A&M Aggies

Resume: 8-1, only loss was to Alabama, beat Florida.
Analysis: First three games: Struggled against Vandy, blown out by Bama, upset Florida. Who are these guys? For the most part, the Aggs took care of business. If they made the playoff, it would not be the first time a team who did not make their conference championship game made it in.

Cincinnati Bearcats

Resume: 8-0, AAC Champs.
Analysis: GTFOH
