Notre Dame, the No. 1 team in the JFP College Football Top 25, prevented a huge mess in the BCS by beating No. 23 USC. Now the Fighting Irish advance to the BCS title game. There they will meet the winner between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia in Saturday’s SEC Championship. Just when the college football “experts” (especially at ESPN) had counted the SEC out of the national title picture, upsets put the nation’s top conference right back in it.
