After the Notre Dame Fighting Irish pulled out a win against the Virginia Tech Hokies over the weekend, Brian Kelly’s team got a small reward for their troubles. In both the USA Today Coaches Poll and the AP Top 25, the Irish rose one spot from #16 to #15.
Here are both polls headed into week 11:
There were no changes in the top five this weekend, but Georgia moved into the #6 spot following a loss by the Florida Gators. Oregon, Utah, and Oklahoma all subsequently moved up a spot as well.
The biggest risers in this week’s polls are the Memphis Tigers who move up to #19 after a huge win over SMU, possibly spoiling the Mustangs’ chances at a NY6 bowl.
Only one remaining Notre Dame opponent is ranked in the top 25. That would be the Navy Midshipmen at #25, who the Irish face in two weeks.
The Irish continue the season on November 9th at Duke.
