5 things for this morning (Nov. 29, 2022)

We’re going to try something new here at Fighting Irish Wire as we settle into the postseason.  Each day we’re going to try and get you set up with five things to know in regard to Notre Dame athletics for the day.  Obviously, that will largely have to do with the football team but it’ll be a way to shout out some of the other sports and athletes as well.  Perhaps a podcast or video or something else will grow and be part of this as well?

Here are your five things to know in regard to Notre Dame, college football, and college athletics as a whole this Tuesday morning, November 29, 2022.

The ACC-Big Ten Challenge is underway for the final time as it was announced Monday that next year there will instead be an ACC-SEC Challenge.  Notre Dame (5-1) is set to host Michigan State (5-2) at 9:15 p.m. EST on Wednesday.

New College Football Playoff Rankings Tonight

The second to last College Football Playoff rankings for the 2022 season are due out just after 7 p.m. EST this evening.  A few questions to think about going into it:

Was Michigan’s win enough to unseat Georgia at No. 1?

Will Ohio State (11-1) or Alabama (10-2) check in at No. 5?

TCU is unbeaten but is their resume better than 11-1 USC’s?  Curious to see how closely these two are compared by the committee.

After the games ended Saturday, we made our predictions to what the new CFP rankings will look like this week.

We’ll take a look at it more in-depth here at Fighting Irish Wire later today but most bowl projections have the Irish headed to the same place to take on an SEC opponent this postseason.  What is it that you most desire for a non-CFP/New Year’s Six bowl game?
