Notre Dame in Preseason Coaches Poll

The preseason Amway Coaches Poll was released today and Notre Dame was listed at number 11.  The last time Notre Dame was ranked 11 was 2013, also a season without Everett Golson on the team. 11 is also the highest preseason ranking a Brian Kelly team has had at Notre Dame. Maybe this is Notre Dames lucky number since it is the amount of National Championships Notre Dame currently has!

Here is a list of the teams on Notre Dames schedule that are ranked,

USC – 10




Even though the coaches poll has no impact on the College Football Playoff rankings, they usually aren’t to far off track except for the #1 team. Last years playoff teams ranked 1, 2, 4 and 6 in the 2014 preseason poll. Ohio St. is the #1 team but the last time the preseason #1 won the national championship was USC in 2004. Last years playoff teams ranked 1, 2, 4 and 6 in the 2014 Preseason Coaches Poll.

There are many interesting facts about the polls but it is still the preseason and a lot of things will happen between now and New Years as Notre Dame works its way to the top of the list to that #1 spot!
