Fighting Irish Athletics | November 14, 2015
On a day when the University of Notre Dame honored the seniors on its football team, the Fighting Irish took another step toward authoring what may become a season that brings many more memorable moments.
Notre Dame defeated Wake Forest, 28-7, Saturday to stay in the hunt for a College Football Playoff berth.
Saturday's victory allowed the Irish seniors to put the finishing touches on a perfect 6-0 record at Notre Dame Stadium this season. The senior class also experienced a perfect home season in 2012. It is the third perfect home season for the Irish since 1990, the other coming in 1998.
No. 6 Notre Dame (9-1) entered the Wake Forest game in the fourth spot in the playoff rankings, behind Clemson, Alabama and Ohio State. The top four teams in the rankings advance to the college football playoffs that determine the national champion. Wake Forest dropped to 3-7 with the loss.
