Despite having the weekend off, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish baseball team is still winning. With losses from the Louisville Cardinals and Florida State Seminoles this weekend, Notre Dame, ranked as high as number 4 in the country, officially won the ACC Atlantic Division. This is the first division win for Notre Dame as a member of the ACC and their first regular season conference title since 2006, as a member of the Big East.
