Football Notre Dame: PFF ranks the Irishman in the top 10

Notre Dame football fans are a little frustrated and unhappy that their Fighting Irish team, despite a 5-0 record in November, has risen to fifteenth place in the postseason standings. this week at College Football, two places above their rankings. there are five games in early November.

That will not take them out of Camping World Bowl and the Cotton or Orange Bowl, but there was a place that considered them one of the top ten teams in the country.

Pro Football Focus has released its latest PFFELO ranking following week 14 of the university season and has deservedly praised Notre Dame, placing them in seventh place.

In his summary of 10-2 Fighting Irish, Pro Football Focus proposed the following:

Ian Book had found a lower than average pass mark, which had already achieved three quality performances during a rather hectic 2019 campaign. The Irish who are fighting are still covered Saturday with a defensive touch less than a minute from the end. The Irish fighting defense did not meet pre-season high expectations as it ranked first among the best defensive units in the country. They dropped to third place in our adversary-adjusted unit rankings and are represented only by an honorable mention from the All-American PFF team. – Football Focus on Notre Dame

I had never seen before that PFF had ranked Notre Dame as one of the best defensive units in the country before the start of the season, but it's a little surprising. Even though the unit was not very good outside a horrible night, we had to replace Jerry Tillery, Drue Tranquill and Julian Love, especially at the beginning.

Notre Dame made its entry just ahead of Wisconsin and Penn State, respectively nine and ten, while the same Michigan team, which beat Notre Dame 45-14 in late October, moved to 11.

I'm not going to ruin the entire poll, you should check their site for the full ranking, but I'll tell you that their lack of Baylor's support at age 17 is more than amazing.
