The Notre Dame Fighting Irish finished the regular season with a 24-17 win over the USC Trojans. Now with a perfect 12-0 record, the Irish await their fate with the College Football Playoff committee. In the meantime, they can rest relatively easy knowing that they remain at the #3 spot in the week 14 USA Today Coaches Poll and the week 14 AP Top 25.

Here’s the complete week 14 Coaches Poll:

With the Michigan loss to Ohio State, the big change this week is the Wolverines being replaced by Georgia at #4. Oklahoma moves up to #5 and Ohio State jumps five spots to #6. Michigan falls back to #8 here. Syracuse and Northwestern jump to #18 and #21 respectively.

Here’s the complete week 14 AP Poll:

The only major difference in the AP Poll is Florida and Washington are flipped at the #10 and #11 spots.

This marks the sixth week in a row that the Irish have been #3 in the AP Poll and Coaches Poll.

College Football Playoff rankings will be released Tuesday night. A new Coaches Poll and AP Top 25 will be released next Sunday following this week’s conference championship games.
