Notre Dame Football: Irish begin slow rise in Coaches Poll and AP Top 25

Top 10 team

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

Fighting Irish opponents currently ranked in the polls are:

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.
