After Saturday's results, only two of Notre Dame's remaining eight opponents are ranked -- and they'll play one of those teams this coming weekend.

Notre Dame dropped a spot to No. 22 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and remained at No. 22 in the AP Poll, while South Bend-bound Oklahoma stayed at No. 12 in the Coaches Poll and No. 14 in the AP.

As of now, Notre Dame's only other ranked opponent is No. 5/No. 5 Stanford. That's also the doing of David Shaw's Cardinal, which knocked off previously-ranked Arizona State, 42-28, in Palo Alto on Saturday.

Notre Dame plays Arizona State (No. 26 in AP, No. 31 in coaches) on Oct. 5 in Dallas.

Another lackluster performance by Michigan, which barely squeaked by a bad UConn team, 24-21, dropped the Wolverines from No. 15 to No. 18 in the AP poll, and from No. 14 to No. 17 in the coaches.
