The off week is over, the first College Football Playoff rankings are out, a subdued Thanksgiving is here, and we get a big football game for dessert on Friday when the No. 2 Notre Dame takes on No. 19 North Carolina.

To add a national perspective to the podcast, Tyler James and Eric Hansen invited CBS Sports national college football writer Dennis Dodd to join this week's podcast.

On the show, Dodd discussed Notre Dame's season, its matchup with North Carolina, the release of the College Football Playoff rankings, the Irish chances of making the playoff and competing well in it, how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact college football moving forward and more.

Then Tyler James and Eric Hansen offered ND-UNC predictions in the Place Your Bets segment (26:26) before answering questions from Twitter (35:00).
