Kirk Herbstreit: One-Loss Notre Dame Is A "Lock" For Playoff

Herbie thinks this one-loss team would be a lock.

The four spots for the College Football Playoff are still up for grabs as we head into the final weeks of the season.

Week 11 features three games in which top 10 opponents are matched up: No. 1 Georgia vs. No. 10 Auburn, No. 3 Notre Dame vs. No. 7 Miami, and No. 5 Oklahoma vs. No. 6 TCU.

On College GameDay this morning, Kirk Herbstreit said Notre Dame is a "lock" to make the playoff if it wins out.

The Fighting Irish only have one loss on the season, and it just so happens to be against the No. 1 team in the country. Notre Dame lost to Georgia by one point in South Bend, and with a strong schedule, the Irish are in a good position for the playoff.

Notre Dame and Miami kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
