Outlook for Notre Dame

FPI gives the No. 8 Fighting Irish a coin flip's chance to at least maintain their position following Saturday's road matchup at Stanford. But without a conference championship game to play, Notre Dame's CFP hopes are bleak.

Miami moves up to No. 2 in latest CFP rankings

Despite rolling to a victory, Clemson fell to No. 3 in this week's CFP rankings, switching spots with No. 2 Miami. Oklahoma remains at No. 4, while top-ranked Alabama readies for the Iron Bowl against No. 6 Auburn.

Though Wisconsin is undefeated, FPI believes there are seven teams with at least one loss that are better than the Badgers going forward. The model currently ranks Miami 12th. Remember, FPI is strictly rating a team's strength, not its resume.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Not much of a surprise given the lack of major upsets yesterday, but there were no changes in the top nine spots in current Strength of Record. The one change on this list is that Oklahoma State fell off following its loss to Kansas State and was replaced by TCU in the No. 10 spot.

FPI: Fighting Irish heavily favored vs. Navy

The Midshipmen snapped a five-game losing streak versus Notre Dame in 2016, winning 28-27. They haven't won back-to-back games in this series since 2009-10. But ESPN's FPI likes the Fighting Irish's chances of bouncing back after suffering an embarrassing 33-point loss to Miami last week.

Week 11 Power Rankings: Irish drop to No. 8

Notre Dame dusts off from its disappointing trip to Miami to host Navy next Saturday with dreams of a playoff invitation likely gone.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Though Miami currently leads the nation in Strength of Record, the Hurricanes still don't crack FPI's top 10 list. This is because FPI is rating team strength going forward, not describing what has already happened. That's also why Ohio State and Penn State -- likely out of the Playoff race -- remain in the top 3.

Will anyone break the turnover chain?
