No. 3 Notre Dame needed a little overtime good fortune against Pitt to stay undefeated, and some great images emerged from the process.
That wasn't the only exciting game to produce breathtaking pictures. Week 10 was full of them, as there was plenty of top-25 action on the schedule, and not surprisingly, there were plenty of cameras to capture the images for all eternity.
Games are still ongoing, including the pivotal contests between Alabama-LSU and Oregon-USC. So check back as we will update this post with the best images from those showdowns.
