Week 15 College Football Playoff Predictions: Notre Dame grabs key win | CBS Sports HQ


No. 2 Notre Dame reached a level of security on Saturday in a 45-21 win over Syracuse that no other team in the top six of the College Football Playoff Rankings can claim just yet. With their win, the Fighting Irish (10-0) ensured that they will have a maximum of one loss when the CFP selection committee reveals its final choices on Dec. 20. That’s because the only game left on the Fighting Irish’s schedule now is a rematch with No. 3 Clemson (who Notre Dame beat last month) in the ACC title game.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Ohio State are also undefeated, but each have a regular season game left in addition to games during conference championship week, while No. 3 Clemson, No. 5 Texas A&M and No. 6 Florida each already have a loss. The Aggies were the only team among the top six to truly be challenged on Saturday, but they rose to the occasion against Auburn in a 31-20 victory by scoring 17 unanswered points to close the game.

Texas A&M racked up 509 yards of total offense, including 313 on the ground, as it improved to 7-1 with games against Ole Miss and Tennessee still ahead as the race for CFP positioning grinds on into mid-December after another action-packed week of college football.
