Four-straight Atlantic Coast Conference losses have knocked Notre Dame from the Associated Press Top 25.

After climbing as high as No. 14 in the poll, the Irish are now unranked for the first time Nov. 28. Notre Dame was ranked No. 20 last week before losing to Duke and North Carolina.

Notre Dame plays unranked Wake Forest on Tuesday (7 p.m., ESPNews) and No. 14 Florida State on Saturday (6 p.m., ESPN).

Five ACC teams are ranked: Louisville (4), North Carolina (8), Virginia (12), FSU (14) and Duke (18).

The Irish are 1-6 against teams currently ranked in the Top 25, the lone win coming against Louisville.
