College Football Predictions 2011: Why Notre Dame Will Make a Run at the BCS

The University of Notre Dame is ranked No. 16 in the AP Top 25 while being ranked No.18 in the USA Today poll, and this year's team has a solid chance of making a run at the BCS. 

Notre Dame automatically revives a BCS bowl invitation if they finish eighth or higher in the final BCS standings, and with a schedule that pulls to their favor it is totally not out of the question. Coach Brian Kelly has reinstated star wide receiver Michael Floyd, and the Irish have two viable candidates at the quarterback position in Dayne Crist and Tommy Rees.  

Coach Kelly named Crist the starter a few days ago, but Rees proved last year that he can step up and contribute if need be. Positive vibes are circulating around the Irish this season, and with coach Brian Kelly at the helm, this team looks to be headed in the right direction, and on its way to its first BCS bowl appearance since the 2005 season.
