Notre Dame loses another big game but gains some respect

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) As the Notre Dame players trudged off the field, they received appreciative cheers from the Georgia fans at Sanford Stadium.

Yes, the Fighting Irish lost another big game, but they gained a new level of respect.

Now the question is: Can they still make the College Football Playoff with a defeat on their record?

"Our mission here is to win championships," coach Brian Kelly said Sunday.
