Notre Dame is officially back. Yesterday's 34-24 win at FSU almost assuredly means they will pass Miami in the BCS rankings this week. To make matters worse for the 'Canes, both schools will probably be heavily favored in their remaining games, with the exception being the Irish's season-ending battle with USC. Miami, on the other hand, is more likely to lose at least once (to VA Tech at home), but the declining fortunes of Syracuse and Tennessee, two of their remaining road opponents, make it unlikely for Miami to pass Notre Dame in the event they remain unbeaten. In fact, it's more likely that they could be passed by either OSU and/or Georgia, an impressive 52-24 winner over J-Load and Kentucky.
