NFP Top 25

Notre Dame’s clash with Florida State on Saturday night managed to live up to the hype. And then some. And so much more.

The Fighting Irish had a potential game-winning touchdown negated by a penalty, but the Fighting Irish showed even in the loss that they are one of the best teams in the country.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the National Football Post's newest Top 25.
