Following a 22-17 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still ranked eighth in the latest USA Today Amway Coaches Poll. This marks the third consecutive week that the Irish have held that spot in these rankings.
Here’s the complete top 25:
Changes to the top ten include LSU jumping to #6 from #12 after upsetting #7 Auburn (who are now ranked #11), Stanford leap frogging Notre Dame after win over FCS UC Davis. Penn State also moved up to #9 from the #10 spot and Virginia Tech joined the top ten despite having their game against East Carolina cancelled.
With Stanford making the jump to #7, that showdown between the Irish and the Cardinal in South Bend on September 29th now carries even more weight.
Notre Dame plays now #10 Virginia Tech on October 6th. The Irish next take the field against Wake Forest in Winston-Salem on September 22nd.
