    Only if Stanford loses to UCLA next week. UCLA has already secured a spot on the other side.

    That quote is silly to me. We have backed into nothing...there was and still is a lot of football to be played.
    RTR! Awesome night and bring on the barn!

    That is what I saw. We are lucky that the other teams lost today since I don't see USC beating Nd now.

    BAMA vs LSU in National Championship game. HAHAHAHA!

    (If Notre Dame loses @ USC....two SEC teams play in the big one)
    Lol, my husband has been saying this same all week after the TAMU loss...I said no way, it's not like last year and way too many things have to fall into place and the voters won't let it happen.
    Now it's actually not that far-fetched if Bama wins out and you end with all the top teams with one loss each. Things could get really muddy if ND loses too...it could happen.

    Lol -- a post from a Barner: "Of all the teams that would help Bama -why did it have to be the trees?"

    It's amazing that just a few weeks ago, it was considered a given that Oregon would have to beat Southern Cal twice.

    It all started in 1966 (I was in the 8th grade). ND purposely played for a tie against Michigan State to preserve their undefeated season (no OT back then). Bama finished 10-0-0, but ND (9-0-1) was awarded the NC because...well, they were ND. I haven't had any use for ND ever since.

    1973 Sugar Bowl: ND beats Bama 13-11 on a flukey TD play in the 4th quarter. (Bama still won the NC because it was decided after the regular season and before the bowls in those days, but still...)

    1974 Orange Bowl: ND beats Bama 24-23.

    1977: Bama (#2 or 3 in the polls, iirc) kicks OSU's butt 35-6 in the Sugar Bowl. ND (#5) beats Texas in the Cotton Bowl something like 38-10, and jumps over everybody to be declared NC.

    Would love to see the Tide get them in the NC and kick their butts into next week.

    Don't forget 1980. #6 Notre Dame beat #5 Alabama, 7-0 in Birmingham. At the time, there was talk that Alabama could play UGA in the Sugar Bowl for the national title. The ND loss ended that.

    Beating ND for the BCSNC would help get over 1973 and it beating them BADLY would be a little payback for 1966 and 1977 also.
