Had Notre Dame used a timeout after the Jones Jr run like almost any coach would have done in that Instead, Notre Dame played defense early on like they were just trying to slow down USC as opposed to shutting them down. Next year we won the national title, no one pushes the Irish around.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

Notre Dame: The Irish likely won't move up even with South Carolina's 20-17 double-overtime victory at No. 3 Georgia. That's because the Irish lost 23-17 at Georgia last month.

No. 19 Michigan routs No. 8 Notre Dame 45-14 in rain .
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jim Harbaugh desperately needed a significant victory to change the conversation, at least temporarily, about the job he's doing at Michigan. The Wolverines delivered. Zach Charbonnet ran for two touchdowns in the first half and Shea Patterson threw for two scores in the second half, helping No. 19 Michigan rout No. 8 Notre Dame 45-14 in driving rain Saturday night. The Wolverines (6-2) ended an eight-game losing streak against top-10 teams under Harbaugh, who needed a signature win in his fifth season that likely won't end with the Big Ten title he and college football's winningest program desperately covet.
