FPI: Fighting Irish heavily favored vs. Navy

The Midshipmen snapped a five-game losing streak versus Notre Dame in 2016, winning 28-27. They haven't won back-to-back games in this series since 2009-10. But ESPN's FPI likes the Fighting Irish's chances of bouncing back after suffering an embarrassing 33-point loss to Miami last week.

Week 11 Power Rankings: Irish drop to No. 8

Notre Dame dusts off from its disappointing trip to Miami to host Navy next Saturday with dreams of a playoff invitation likely gone.

Though Miami currently leads the nation in Strength of Record, the Hurricanes still don't crack FPI's top 10 list. This is because FPI is rating team strength going forward, not describing what has already happened. That's also why Ohio State and Penn State -- likely out of the Playoff race -- remain in the top 3.

Notre Dame's first score of the game might be little consolation for Irish fans after watching Miami dominate up to this point. But Brian Kelly showed some faith in Brandon Wimbush in turning to him again to lead the offense.
