College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, Week 6: No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 8 UNC hold off feisty opponents
Though No. 1 Clemson’s game against No. 7 Miami was the national headliner on Saturday, a pair of other top-10 ACC teams were in action, and both overcame tests before holding on to win as No. 5 Notre Dame beat Florida State 42-26 and No. 8 North Carolina outlasted No. 19 Virginia Tech 56-45. Both the Fighting Irish and Tar Heels will be candidates to move up in the polls after No. 4 Florida lost to No. 21 Texas A&M.
After two weeks off due to a game wiped out by a COVID-19 outbreak followed by a scheduled bye, Notre Dame hoped to pick up where it left off in a 52-0 throttling of South Florida on Sept. 19. But a Florida State team starting its third quarterback of the season in Jordan Travis provided some resistance. Ultimately, Notre Dame’s offense was too much for the Seminoles as the Fighting Irish racked up 554 yards, including 353 on the ground.
The Tar Heels also found their stride offensively as they finished with 656 total yards, including 399 on the ground. It remains to be seen whether either team can hang with Clemson, but the Fighting Irish and Tar Heels are now alone with the Tigers as the last unbeaten teams in the ACC after another wild day of college football.
