It was a short-lived visit for the Irish, who returned to the top 25 for there first time since the loss to the Duke Blue devils a year ago. This loss, however, wasn't nearly as grievous as it came to the #13 Bulldogs by one point.
Technically, Notre Dame is ranked #32. If you're keeping track, the Ohio State Buckeyes fell 6 spots from #2 to #8 after getting destroyed at home by the Oklahoma Sooners 31-16. Oklahoma is now ranked #2 -up three spots from #5.
