Senior captain Cam McDaniel represents production, while sophomores Greg Bryant and Tarean Folston represent potential and promise. Coach Brian Kelly is hoping the sixth-ranked Irish can turn that promise more into production as the season wears on, starting against North Carolina (2-3) on Saturday. “We’re doing OK. We’re going to get better. We’re committed to being better to running the football,” Kelly said Tuesday.

  • Golson rallies Irish to 17-14 win over Stanford Oct 5, 2014 12:45 AM
    Everett Golson spotted tight end Ben Koyack alone in the back of the end zone just in time. On fourth-and-11 from the 23 and trailing 14-10, Golson dropped back to pass and managed to avoid the Stanford rush just long enough to find Koyack as two Cardinal defensive backs tried to recover from the blown assignment. Koyack caught the pass as he fell out of bounds, while safety Jordan Richards dove to try to break it up, and scored the winning touchdown with 61 seconds left to give the No. 9 Irish the 17-14 victory on a cold, rainy Saturday.

  • Notre Dame ready for physical game against Stanford Oct 3, 2014 10:48 PM
    Stanford has a history of beating Notre Dame teams ranked in the top 10 in South Bend. The question is, can it happen again when 14th-ranked Stanford (3-1) clashes with the No. 9 Irish (4-0)? The Cardinal is actually favored in this one, despite the Irish having a better ranking and winning 15 of their last 16 games at Notre Dame Stadium.

  • Badgers look to end skid at Northwestern Oct 3, 2014 10:29 PM
    The last time Wisconsin won at Northwestern, Ron Dayne was making his run for the Heisman Trophy and the Badgers were on the way to the Rose Bowl. Yes, it has been that long. The 17th-ranked Badgers bring a three-game winning streak into their Big Ten opener on Saturday at Northwestern, hoping for their first road win against the Wildcats since 1999.

  • Illinois hopes to extend Purdue’s struggles Oct 3, 2014 10:26 PM
    Illinois coach Tim Beckman was asked this week if Saturday’s game against Purdue is a must win. “Every game’s a must win,” Beckman said before quickly moving on. This one, though, may be more so than most for the Illini (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten). The Boilermakers (2-3, 0-1) are probably the most clearly beatable opponent still on the schedule for the Illini.

The Cardinal also has beaten the Irish four of their last five meetings.

  • Michigan QB Gardner to start vs Rutgers Oct 1, 2014 5:34 PM
    After leaving sophomore quarterback Shane Morris on the field following a hit to the head last weekend, Michigan coach Brady Hoke took responsibility for the program’s breakdown in communication Wednesday and said Devin Gardner will start against Rutgers. Hoke did not elaborate on discrepancies between his news conference Monday and athletic director Dave Brandon’s statement on Morris’ injuries early Tuesday.
