The two "human" rankings have the Fighting Irish now ranked #4 in the country -- after Florida's defeat to the hands of Georgia yesterday afternoon.
There is not a team ranked ahead of Notre Dame who has as many quality wins as NOTRE DAME. And, that is FACT.
I'm quite certain the COMPUTER ranking systems will take that into play -- which could move Notre Dame ahead of Oregon into the #3 slot in the BCS rankings -- which will be released this evening at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN.
