While enjoying a bye week, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish managed to still benefit from another chaotic week in college football. While the Irish are still at #8 in the AP Top 25, they rose one spot to #7 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
Here are both polls headed into week nine:
The Wisconsin Badgers suffered their first loss of the season, causing them to fall out of the top ten.
The Michigan Wolverines, who Notre Dame play this weekend, lost on the road to Penn State which moved them to #19 and #20.
The Irish head to Michigan this Saturday on ABC at 7:30 ET.
