They BARELY beat a lousy Purdue team. Did I mention both of those games were in South Bend? I'll call Oklahoma a quality victory too, but I wouldn't go as far to say ND's schedule was "very legit". Hardly.
Oklahoma is another team with an inflated ranking. Their only win against a ranked team was over Texas. ND beat Stanford in OT. Other than that their schedule was pretty easy. ND's defense looked great during their season stat wise, but it was all because they didn't play anyone.
Dude. You can do this with any team.
The majority of the other teams in the top 10 have actually played and beat multiple other highly ranked teams. ND played Stanford that's it.
Look at who Alabama, Georgia, Texas A & M, Florida, LSU, and south carolina have played. Their schedules look a heck of a lot more difficult than NDs.
