Is the new Notre Dame ready for prime time?

And in the seventh week, Brian Kelly and his Fighting Irish rested from all the work they had done. Kelly saw the progress they had made, and behold, it was pretty darn good.

Irish start College Football Playoff campaign after taking out USC

The season's first true playoff elimination game delivered.

Notre Dame is in the mix for the top four. USC is not.

The Irish completely outclassed a sloppy Trojans team, storming out to a four-touchdown lead en route to a 49-14 win at raucous Notre Dame Stadium. Coach Brian Kelly's team applied a familiar formula -- big-chunk runs with a bevy of ball carriers, opportunistic defense and timely passes -- to record its fifth straight win, and its first over a ranked opponent.

The Eagles, Best Buy and science camp: Our favorite Nick Saban stories on his 66th birthday

It's Halloween, which means it's Nick Saban's birthday. What do you get the guy who has five national championship rings, a seemingly indestructible machine of a program ranked No.1 and is the sport's highest-paid coach? Well, we don't know, either. So rather than try to figure it out, we're just going to tell some of our favorite stories about the coach, including a bunch you likely haven't heard before.

It looks like we could have an all SEC championship game this year.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Alabama did have a better overall record but Ohio State had a fantastic season as well. Arguments could be made for both sides.
