Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

Notre Dame jumps up one spot to No. 4, still behind Alabama, Oregon and Kansas State in AP poll

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish jumped up one spot to No. 4 this week following their road victory over No. 14 Oklahoma Saturday.

Oregon and Kansas State narrowly edged out the Fighting Irish for the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. Kansas State defeated No. 20 Texas Tech, 55-24, while Oregon steamrolled Colorado, 70-14. The Alabama Crimson Tide continue its stranglehold on the top spot, receiving all 60 first-place votes.

LSU jumped back into the top five, a place they have not been since their loss to Florida Oct. 6. LSU plays No. 1 Alabama this week.

Northwestern did not make the Top 25, but they did receive seven votes. The Wildcats are 7-2 on the season and 3-2 in the Big Ten. Only two Big Ten teams made the Top 25 this week: Ohio State at No. 6 and Nebraska at No. 21. Despite their top 10 ranking, Ohio State will not be playing in a bowl this year as they are ineligible for postseason play.
