A couple of weeks ago, I drew the ire of Notre Dame fans for considering the Irish's overtime victory over Stanford as a tie. I'm still convinced that Notre Dame didn't win that game, as the officials missed the Cardinal's game-tying touchdown to end the game prematurely. However, it's impossible to dismiss Notre Dame's victory over Oklahoma in Norman this weekend. I no longer can separate Notre Dame from the other BCS contenders at this point, so they make the big jump this week.
Lots of teams are out this week for their own version of suckage. That creates lots of openings for new teams, including Nebraska at #19. Sounds a little high at first, but the BCS standings spot the Big Red at #20. And who goes ahead of Nebraska at this point?
