Notre Dame Fighting Irish Rumors & News
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- In the marquee college football matchup of the week, Notre Dame and Florida State are tied 7-7.
Notre Dame sits at No. 5 in both the coaches' and Associated Press polls Sunday after its 50-43 win over North Carolina while Florida State, the Irish's opponent Saturday, dropped from No. 1 to No. 2.

Six of the Orange's points came on a pick-six.
