Coming off of their bye, the Irish stayed at number nine. Plus, they're still receiving a first-place vote!

The Irish got to hang out and watch the rest of the college football world burn over the weekend, and while that helped them move up in the AP and coaches' poll, they hung tight at number nine in this week's BlogPoll. Notre Dame is also still receiving a first-place vote, although the ballot giving Brian Kelly's squad that much love has switched from Blatant Homerism to Iowa blog Black Heart Gold Pants. Thanks, Iowa!

Should the Hurricanes fall on Saturday night, the Irish have a good chance of moving further up the poll, as they'll likely pass the Georgia/South Carolina loser.
