The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 7-1 and ranked #10 after the first set of college football playoff rankings. Up next for the Irish are the Navy Midshipmen and their triple-option attack. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Notre Dame is 21 point favorite with the over/under set at 47.5. Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See draftkings.com/sportsbook for details.
Can the Irish do enough in a game that no one cares about to move up in the rankings this week? Obviously that means a loss 9or more) will be needed by the teams in front of them — but this is certainly the season for that craziness.
It’s week 9!
