The Notre Dame Fighting Irish we’re idle in two senses this week. They didn’t take the field after completing their regular season and they stayed put in every set of national rankings. The Irish head into bowl season ranked #14, #14, and #15 in the Coaches Poll, AP Poll, and CFP Rankings, respectively.
With the rankings the way they are, we’ll see the LSU Tigers face the Oklahoma Sooners and the Ohio State Buckeyes face the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
The Irish now get to work preparing to face the unranked Iowa State Cyclones in the Camping World Bowl on December 28th
