The stakes each week only get higher for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish each week as they try to make a run at the college football playoff a New Years 6 bowl game. Not only do they need to win out, but they will need some help from all over the country. Some of that help can come from the teams on Notre Dame’s schedule. If Notre Dame’s opponents are having a good year, then obviously a win against each opponent helps them in their cause (except for Michigan — because screw those guys).
I’ll be keeping tabs on Notre Dame’s massive needs from other to get a New Years 6 Bowl bid and talk about that later in the week — so don’t you worry about that.
