Notre Dame ranked 16th in AP Preseason Poll

Notre Dame has big expectations for this year; but, now the whole country knows about it too. AP ranked Notre Dame at number 16 in their preseason poll. The last time they were ranked this high was November 2009.

This is great for Notre Dame. They now have a target on their back because people are beginning to suspect they are BCS Bound. Now it is still very early in the year. But, how can you not be excited for this news.

The top five in the poll are as follows:

1. Oaklahoma

2. Alabama

3. Oregon

4. LSU

5. Boise State

Very exciting times at Notre Dame. As we prepare for the new season, be sure to follow SlapTheSign on Twitter and Facebook!
