    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame men's lacrosse team is ranked No. 1 in this week's United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) coaches poll and the Nike/Inside Lacrosse media poll.

    Notre Dame went 2-0 last week to improve to 6-1 this season. The Fighting Irish topped then No. 8 Ohio State, 9-4, on Wednesday. Notre Dame opened BIG EAST play on Sunday with a 7-6 win at Rutgers.

    Five of Notre Dame's six wins have come against a team ranked in the top 10 of the USILA poll at the time of the contest. This is the first time ever the Irish have defeated five top-10 opponents in the same regular season.

    This signifies the second time the Fighting Irish have achieved the No. 1 national ranking. Notre Dame debuted at No. 1 in both polls on April 18, 2011, and stayed there until April 30 of that year.

    The Fighting Irish return to action Saturday when they play host to St. John's at Arlotta Stadium. The BIG EAST showdown is slated for 1 p.m. (ET).
