College Football Rankings 2011: Notre Dame and 3 Teams That Should Be in USA Today Poll
Notre Dame fans, we hear you. Yes we know that your Fighting Irish team has won four straight games. Yes, we know that win yesterday was a complete domination against a good Air Force Team. And yes, you sit idle next week thus making your chances of getting on the next USA Today Poll almost impossible.
But, your cries aren’t the only ones from a disgruntled fan base. There are a couple of other schools that are right on the cusp of making the Coaches Poll.
Who are they and why did they miss out?
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
It looked as if the Irish had as good of a shot as ever to make this week’s poll. They won big at home against Air Force never trailing in the game. Will a win against USC in two-weeks finally put them back on the Coaches Poll?
Washington was idle this week so they didn’t hurt or help their cause. But, a win this week against Colorado should put the Huskies into the top 25 for the first time this year.
North Carolina Tar Heels
They didn’t win pretty this week against Louisville, but, a win is a win. They’re 5-1 on the season and a win against Miami (FL) should put them back into the Coaches Poll next week.
