  • Out of top four, Notre Dame can add cheering to its busy weekend
    These things are fluid, remember? The College Football Playoff committee warned us of at least that much last year, when TCU went from No. 3 to No. 6 in the final rankings, despite beating Iowa State by 52 in its finale. This is not the old system.
