Week 13 Notes:

Notre Dame Remains Unbeaten; Will Play SEC Champ for National Title

The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame completed an undefeated regular season at 12-0 with a gutsy, 22-13, victory over PAC-12 rival USC, setting up a showdown with the winner of the SEC Championship, either Georgia or Alabama, both 11-1.

In their final tune-up before the SEC title game, the Bulldogs knocked off Georgia Tech handily, 42-10, while the Crimson Tide made a mockery of their in-state rivalry with Auburn, downing the Tigers, 49-0.

The SEC dominated play on the final weekend of the regular season for most conferences. South Carolina came from behind to take down one of the ACC's top teams, Clemson, 27-17, sending the Tigers tumbling from #4 in the rankings all the way down to #15.

LSU had a struggle with Arkansas, as is often the case, but the boys from the Bayou eventually prevailed, 20-13. Florida also rallied past an ACC foe, topping Florida State, 37-26. Texas A&M defeated Missouri, 59-29, in a battle of two first-season SEC teams. Both the Aggies and Tigers came over from the decimated Big 12 this season, though the Aggies fared far better, posting a 10-2 record.

In other rivalries, Oklahoma rallied to beat Oklahoma State in overtime, 51-48, Oregon completed their season at 11-1, ripping Oregon State, 48-24.

Stanford will make its case as one of the top teams in the nation, tearing up UCLA, 35-17. In an odd scheduling scenario, the same two teams meet this Saturday to decide the PAC-12 championship, the winner receiving an automatic BCS bowl bid.

The Big East had no luck whatsoever, as their top two teams - Rutgers and Louisville - each fell victim to supposedly-lesser opposition, as Pitt hammered the Scarlet Knights, 27-6, and Louisville came up short for the second straight game, losing at UConn, 23-20 in triple overtime.

Though only two teams in the Top 10 were losers - Florida State and Clemson - the middle of the Top 25 rankings were decimated, as numbers 17 though 21 - UCLA, Texas, Louisville, Oregon State and Michigan, all went down to defeat. Michigan lost to Ohio State, 26-21, handing the Buckeyes three second half turnovers to finish the season at 8-4.

The Buckeyes completed an unbeaten season at 12-0, but are ineligible for post-season play due to sanctions imposed by the NCAA for various violations.

Reaching the Downtown Magazine rankings for the first time in the seven year history of the independent ranking system, San Jose State got in at #25, after defeating Louisiana Tech, 52-43, completing the Spartans' best season in 25 years, at 9-2.

Week 14 sets up as championship week, with titles being determined in championship games in the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, PAC-12 and the MAC, where Northern Illinois travels to Kent State on Friday night. The Big East seems to have planned for the inevitable, with Rutgers traveling to Louisville on Thursday night for all the conference marbles and a BCS bowl game though the game is the final regular season affair for both squads.
