Notre Dame’s updated national bowl projections following Oregon loss

·1 min read

The path seemed impossible a few short weeks ago but thanks to Oregon getting dismantled at Utah, the Big Ten only having one team survive the season with one loss, and Alabama not exactly stacking up the style points against Arkansas, Notre Dame still has a shot at the College Football Playoff (CFP).

The new CFP rankings come out Tuesday night and we expect Notre Dame to check in sixth. Obviously there is a lot ahead that needs to go the way of the Irish down the stretch, but the CFP remains a possibility for them.

Now are any national writers willing to project that outcome yet?

Here are the updated national Notre Dame bowl projections:
