The 6-2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish had a week off from the action, and were likely enjoying a well made cheeseburger or two (allegedly). For their trouble, Notre Dame moved up to #14 in both the Coaches Poll and the AP Top 25 Poll.
Despite a solid day of upsets and almost upsets, there wasn’t much movement in the polls. Notre Dame’s single spot movement is directly related to the North Carolina Tar Heels dropping a game to the Virginia Cavaliers.
Irish opponents in the rankings:
The only other Irish opponent to gain any votes were the Clemson Tigers in the coaches poll — so I hope Dabo Swinney is happy with himself and his #25 ballot.
There is only one Sunday rankings release left before the College Football Playoff committee releases its first set of rankings on Tuesday, October 31st — BOO!
