PITTSBURGH — It was the kind of stuff Notre Dame thought was in the past.
PITTSBURGH -- Notre Dame's championship hopes rested on the right foot of Pitt kicker Kevin Harper just over a year ago.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- In the last two years, Notre Dame has two easy wins at home: Last year against Wake Forest, and this year against Temple.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Behind a nearly-spotless game from Tommy Rees, Notre Dame cruised past a hapless Air Force squad, 45-10, Saturday afternoon at Falcon Stadium.
Notre Dame is still on the outside looking in as the first BCS standings were released Sunday night, and also was shut out of the AP and coaches top 25 polls.
