Notre Dame has mostly flown under the radar during the 2017 season. That figures to end this week after the Fighting Irish dismantled the formerly No. 11 USC Trojans, 49-14, on Saturday night.
Former ESPN College Football analyst Danny Kanell was one of the first figure heads to release his Top 8 rankings Sunday morning and ranked Notre Dame at No. 6.
1. Bama-worst resume in top 10
2. Clemson-best resume period
4. PSU-enjoy while it lasts

The only loss the Fighting Irish have suffered this season was a 1-point defeat against Kanell’s No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs.
But if the Irish are to stay in that Top 8 and continue to move up, they will have to earn it. Even after facing rival USC, Notre Dame still has three ranked opponents remaining in its last five games, including the No. 7 team in Kanell’s rankings – the Miami Hurricanes on the road.
