Here are how each of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s opponents fared in week twelve of the 2022 college football season:
OHIO STATE BUCKEYES (11-0) #2

MARSHALL THUNDERING HERD (7-4)
Marshall ripped off its third win in a row with a 23-10 win over Georgia Southern.
CALIFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS (4-7)
Cal had no business beating Stanford and was down to the Cardinal 17-6 when they entered the fourth quarter. A couple of turnovers later, Cal put up 21 unanswered points — unless you count the last second field goal by Stanford when they were down 10 points.
NORTH CAROLINA TAR HEELS (9-2) #18
The shine finally came off of the Heels as they get stung by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, 21-17.
BYU COUGARS (6-5)

SYRACUSE ORANGE (6-5)
Syracuse lost its fifth straight game — this week it was a 45-35 loss to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
CLEMSON TIGERS (10-1) #7
Clemson still has a chance at the playoff and drilled the Miami Hurricanes, 40-10.

BOSTON COLLEGE EAGLES (3-8)
Boston College got bludgeoned by the Irish in the snow, 44-0.
USC TROJANS (10-1) #5
