The coaches poll was just released and the Irish have moved up two spots to number five. After the big win again Saturday night, Notre Dame has the entire country on notice.
With the LSU loss and Notre Dame beating its third ranked team of the year, it was a matter of time before they moved into the top five. Even with the sluggish start, Notre Dame proved once again they were the real deal.
Even Desmond Howard, a known Irish hater, has said that the Irish were one of the top four teams in the country. He went on to say they would lose to Virginia Tech but again, he always picks against the Irish.
This Notre Dame team is the real deal and has gotten through the toughest part of the schedule. They look destined for a College Football Playoff spot come the end of the season. Book has this team playing inspired and the defense is the best the Irish have had in some time.
