After a thrilling win against Stanford, the Irish are up to 5th in the BCS rankings and the AP/USA polls. Their defense hasn't given up a TD in the last four games, 3 of those against teams that were rated in the Top 20 when the games were played. Granted their offense isn't particularly good but they've done enough to get the job done.
In ...[text shortened]... on at USC. Certainly if they run the table, they'll get a shot at the title. Can they do it?

What's this? My man pulling for a pro-life football team? I love it.
Irish all the way. I don't think they'll get the look for the big game - everybody wants them there but I don't think they're better than K-State. Probably better than Oregon. If they can pull it off against Oklahoma, and they can, they can beat USC and roll in to the bowl games 12-0. The season is Saturday.
Originally posted by whodeyI was stunned by the awesome defensive performance. Seems like OU never got the swagger back after that botched snap. They never looked the same! Hats off to the Irish!
Congrats to the Irish. It seems I underestimated them. I guess the last test will be against USC in their last game of the season.
Even though they have improved, I dare say I don't envy them going up against Alabama, but I guess they need a sacrificial lamb of some sort, so why not the Irish?
