Some will argue that UCF deserves to be ranked even higher, but at this point this ranking has to be seen as a huge win for the program. Notre Dame knows that a victory in this game should make them an automatic lock for the College Football Playoff, so it should be expected that they will come out aggressive as they hope to put up another impressive performance in an attempt to cap off an undefeated regular season. Head coach Brian Kelly's squad has wins over No. 4 MI (24-17), No. 19 Northwestern (31-21), No. 20 Syracuse (36-3) and No. 24 Pittsburgh (19-14). However, some teams are still playing for their 6th win to secure a potential bowl bid, while other losing teams are playing the rivalry game as their bowl game looking to stick it to their rival.

And Georgia will host Georgia Tech (7-4). Notre Dame 4. MI 5. No. 7 LSU and No. 8 Washington State also stand firm. UCF 10. Ohio State 11. An 11-1 Notre Dame squad would likely be ahead of a 12-1 Washington State, but maybe not in front of 12-1 Oklahoma.
