Just wanted to take the temperature of board...
Flat out, if their are three undefeated teams at the end of the year and one is ND (not including Louisville), what are the chances ND is in the NC game?
Realistically, I think that ND will be the team on the outside looking in... probably 10% chance ND is in the game.

This has been beaten to death. We need two out of three to lose. If they don't, we will not get in, and that's all there is to it.
We're below all three in the BCS right now and we have the weakest remaining SOS so we can't make up ground.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!

I'm looking at a couple things down the stretch.
Bama plays the most dynamic offense that they will see all season this weekend. Texas A&M is no joke. They almost pulled out a win against LSU (yes, I'm aware that was at home). This game will be H*U*G*E for A&M and they will be pumped for this game. Just as Bama will be coming off of an emotionally draining game at LSU. Watch this game!!
Oregon will be playing the only two teams on their schedule that play defense and also, the best two defenses in the PAC-12 in Stanford and Oregon St.! Watch these game ladies and gentlemen. We might get a taste on how ND's defense would fair against the Ducks.
Kansas St.? well, lets face it! It is very doubtful that KSU loses unless they have a total lapse of concentration (see ND against Pitt) and blow it! Also, KSU plays the first weekend in Dec. when everyone else is sitting home watching. Anything is possible though.
I do think that the only team that we have any chance of jumping over would be KSU but we need the teams that we have played to win out. Not sure how likely that is to happen!

Beat SC by >1TD more than Oregon did and we might.

I feel like we need help and have to have at least two teams lose. It could happen. We have to take care of our business most of all.

I see a couple undefeated teams losing this week or next. One of which is NOT ND. If it comes down to us or K State, I feel we will have the better schedule, especially if USC can beat Oregon in CCG.
Before the season started, I predicted a 10 win season for us, but always thought that winning a National Championship for Manti would be awesome. After all he has been thru and how well he has played, he deserves it even more. We have been getting lots of things going our way this year. Winning games we normally would have lost. Luck? Karma coming back to our side? Who cares! Ride with it.
