CHAPEL HILL, NC – OCTOBER 07: Head coach Brian Kelly of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish watches his team play against the North Carolina Tar Heels during the game at Kenan Stadium on October 7, 2017 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)Notre Dame, still undefeated, has a big game against a desperate Florida State squad on Saturday, and the Fighting Irish will be wearing green uniforms for the affair. It looks like they may have trolled a former opponent when they unveiled them.In the first game of the season, Notre Dame knocked off Michigan, 24-17, at home. At the moment, it’s a big deal – because the Fighting Irish and the Wolverines are No. 3 and No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings, respectively.Notre Dame apparently does not want the committee to forget how the game turned out. When the Fighting Irish unveiled their green jerseys earlier this week, there were two interesting numbers on display.Check it out:No. 3 @NDFootball is playing the home finale the way you started it, #NDFamily…… in green.#GoIrish☘️ #BeatSeminoles pic.twitter.com/OglWcsm0Sj— The Fighting Irish (@FightingIrish) November 9, 2018Love the Michigan score in the jersey numbers. (Spotted by @jameslikesbball )— Joe Decker (@JuRD5) November 9, 2018Assuming both teams win out, the committee is going to have to make a tough decision where to rank them. Michigan will have knocked off Ohio State and the Big Ten West champion, while Notre Dame will have finished undefeated – with a win over the Wolverines.The odds suggest that if both teams win out, they’ll be in the playoff – unless both Oklahoma and Washington State also run the table to make it interesting.Notre Dame takes on Florida State on Saturday, while Michigan gets Rutgers.
