College Football Rankings: Notre Dame At No. 21 In SB Nation's BlogPoll

Coming off a solid season opener, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are ranked No. 21 in SB Nation's Week 2 BlogPoll entering this week's game. The Irish are 1-0 this year after their 50-10 blowout victory over Navy in Dublin, Ireland last week.

With that win, Notre Dame nearly finds itself in the top 20 of SB Nation's primary college football poll. The Irish will need to pile up some more impressive victories to climb up the rankings, though, and that could start this week by defeating the Purdue Boilermakers.

After playing Purdue on Saturday, Notre Dame will go through an absolutely brutal stretch of games. Over a six-week span, the Irish will face Michigan State, Michigan, Miami (Fla.), Stanford, BYU and Oklahoma. Four of those teams are ranked, while the other two are coming off solid season-opening victories over BCS conference opponents.
