The Fighting Irish fell out of the AP Top 25 on Monday for the first time since the end of the 2006-07 season, stopping a streak of 234 consecutive weeks being ranked. It was the third longest active streak behind UConn’s (492) and Baylor’s (302).

Michigan State plays host to Oakland on Tuesday, while Michigan plays host to Notre Dame on Saturday.
