The Notre Dame Fighting Irish gutted one out inside Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday night and went home back to South Bend with a 21-14 victory over the Duke Blue Devils.

Notre Dame is now #10 in the AP Top 25 and #11 in the Coaches Poll.

The Clemson Tigers also received votes this week in both polls with Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Miami Hurricanes, and NC State Wolfpack on the horizon — they could likely be ranked again by the time the Irish play them in Death Valley.
