2017 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The Fighting Irish blow past Temple to set an early tone, and then get by Georgia is a big early home win. They survive the road dates against Boston College and Michigan State, before blowing away Miami University and starting out 6-0 after getting past North Carolina. In a classic, Notre Dame gets into the top three in the rankings with a win over USC, before taking care of NC State and Wake Forest.

Realistically, the Irish aren’t going to go undefeated with at least two losses, so in a best case scenario, they finish 10-2, losing at Miami and Stanford.

2017 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

They come out clunky in a tight win over Temple, and then get rolled by Georgia in South Bend. With three road games in four weeks, they lose two of them – likely to Michigan State and North Carolina – before getting outclassed by USC. While they rally back with a few wins, losses to Miami and Stanford mean a pedestrian 6-6 season and a mediocre bowl.
