Brian Kelly and the unbeaten Irish must navigate a tough remaining schedule in order to clinch the program's first BCS bowl berth since 2006.

For the first time since 2002, Notre Dame will carry an unblemished record into October. 

Head coach Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish have looked impressive in jumping out to a 4-0 start, and with a decent spot in the polls (No. 10 in Associated Press, and No. 11 in USA Today Coaches Poll), the Irish are looking to earn their first BCS bowl bid since 2006.
