Notre Dame returned to the top 10 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll today.
The Irish moved up one spot to No. 10 after their 13-6 victory Saturday night over Michigan. Notre Dame hasn't been ranked this high since it was No. 6 entering the final regular-season game of 2006.
The Irish also moved up in the USA Today coaches poll, going from No. 15 to No. 11.
Coach Brian Kelly said during his Sunday teleconference that the top-10 ranking will not change how his team operates as it enters a bye week before playing Miami in Chicago on Oct. 6.
"We go back to work," Kelly said. "We'll watch the Michigan game tomorrow, same routine that we've had each and every week. We'll practice Tuesday and Wednesday, weight train on Thursday, and they've got a lot to do in the classroom, a lot of exams coming up. We'll be really busy. We'll be focused on that and work right into Miami."
Michigan, which came into Saturday's game ranked 18th in the AP poll and 17th in the coaches poll, fell out of the top 25 in both.
