Notre Dame football bowl projections after upsetting Syracuse

Notre Dame’s impressive win at Syracuse last Saturday brought the Irish to 5-3 on the season and within one win of becoming bowl eligible.  Will that come Saturday when Notre Dame plays host to No. 5 Clemson?  The Irish would certainly like nothing more than to spoil the Tigers unbeaten season.

After Clemson is games against Navy and Boston College which means a total of at least seven regular-season wins seems imminent.  An upset to close the year at USC would be dandy, too.  Then again, this. is a team that lost at home to both Marshall and Stanford so forget I said anything.

Where is Notre Dame bound for this postseason?  Here is what the experts nationwide say as to the bowl projections for the Irish.
