Many have projected where they expect teams to land later this evening and 247Sports Chris Hummer took his shot at what the rankings should look like. With Georgia, Michigan State, Alabama and Cincinnati all in the projected coveted Top-4 spots, many project that the Irish will be inside the Top-10 when they are announced.

These rankings don’t really matter in the long run and are fun to look at, but it’s obviously the final set that means the most. Notre Dame is in solid footing but they’ll have to climb over other 1-loss teams and the Bearcats, who beat them earlier. It might be a little early to say this but it’s very possible that Notre Dame ends up on the outside looking after the regular season concludes.
