Rutgers Does Notre Dame a Favor

Can you say, 'Thank you, Rutgers.' Of course you can. The Scarlet Knights just did Notre Dame, and Texas and Florida and USC and every other one-loss team a big favor by upsetting previously undefeated Louisville.

Third-ranked Louisville is likely to take a big drop in the BCS standings, which means teams such as Notre Dame are likely to move up. If enough upsets happen in the next few weeks, the Irish (8-1) could slip into the national title game -- assuming they keep winning.

Yes, that national title shot is probably overly optimistic, but they will certainly lock up a BCS bowl bid if they finish 11-1. Who knows? Maybe 10-2 might make it after all.
