Notre Dame, Cincinnati and college football's other pleasant surprises of 2020

It's OK to admit it: College football's Week 11 slate isn't great. That was the case before three games involving top-five teams, not to mention over half of the SEC's slate, were postponed or canceled, and it is certainly the case afterward. There are no ranked-vs.-ranked matchups, and there isn't a game that involves both a national title contender and a single-digit spread. After last week's big Florida-Georgia and Notre Dame-Clemson duo, that feels like a letdown.
