Notre Dame is ranked 7th in the Top 25 preseason Sporting News

Notre Dame’s preseason charts are a bit ubiquitous, with some putting Fighting Irish just outside the top five and others not even putting Notre Dame in the top ten. Sporting News has the Irish in the middle, putting Notre Dame in 7th place on its latest standings, which sees things stand since the transfer portal closed on May 1st.

College football writer Bill Bender explains what he sees from Notre Dame:

What has changed? Marcus Freeman took over as head coach and retained Tommy Rees as attack coordinator. Former Miami coach Al Golden takes over the defense. Northwest Security Brandon Joseph is a big stake in the transfer portal.
