OK, someone help me here with the logic:
Alabama, who is better than USC, should hope USC beats Notre Dame because.....Alabama can't?
Oh, a few more things:
1) Yes, McCarron threw 34 times - because he was down 20-0. Unless Notre Dame's QB is going to put the Tide down, 20-0, this argument holds no water.
2) What GOOD running game have they stifled? Sure, they stifled Navy because they were up by 40 points.
