Here Come the Irish

Notre Dame has finally proved that they are all they were hyped up to be. The No. 4 Fighting Irish absolutely obliterated No. 15 Penn State in today's 41-17 victory and should be number two in the AP Poll following the Ohio State-Texas game.

Charlie Weis set out to show Brady Quinn's skills from the onset of the game, with almost every play going through the air. Quinn was 25-36 for 287 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Although it was a great win for the Irish, much of the result can be attributed to Penn State. After a Big Ten championship season in 2005, Penn State looked flat, with quarterback Anthony Morelli suffering an unproductive game. The Nittany Lions were plagued with mistakes in this one, including a bad snap, an interception and a pair of fumbles.

No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 Texas will face off against one another shortly, while No. 3 USC has a bye week before facing a top 25 Nebraska team.
