The final top 25 polls of the 2018 college football season have been released following the College Football Playoff national title game.
Notre Dame fans aren’t happy.
The Fighting Irish, who finished the season at 12-1 with their lone loss coming against national title-winning Clemson, are No. 5 in the final Associated Press top 25.

Notre Dame fans believe their team should be higher – at No. 3, at least.
Ridiculous.. only loss is to National Champion team..

Only loss to the National Champion and OU and OSU jump us? OU has 2 losses. Not that it matters but the hate continues.

Congratulations ND…however, your only loss was to the National Champions. I think you should have been #3. Great season! Looking forward to next year! #GoIrish

Of course, the final top 25 polls don’t really matter.
If Notre Dame goes undefeated again in 2019, the Fighting Irish will be back in the College Football Playoff.
Brian Kelly’s team is projected to start the 2019 season ranked inside the top 10.
