  • Notre Dame looking for consecutive wins vs. USC Oct 15, 2013 8:40 PM
    If Notre Dame beats Southern California on Saturday, the Fighting Irish will accomplish two feats for the first time since Bob Davie was coach.

Notre Dame (4-2) has won two of the last three in the series, including last year’s 22-13 win at the Coliseum that clinched a spot in the BCS championship game.

    Although he is entering his 14th season as the head coach at Notre Dame, Mike Brey said he almost feels like he’s starting a new job. Brey must not only adjust to a new conference for the Fighting Irish in transitioning from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference, he has to find a way to replace the rebounding and energy of graduated forward Jack Cooley.

     
  • Irish enter unfamiliar ACC with familiar goals Oct 8, 2013 8:02 PM
    Despite losing the heart of the team with the graduation of hometown star Skylar Diggins, Notre Dame isn’t changing its goals for the season with its move to the Atlantic Coast Conference. “They’re the same: a national championship, ACC championship. They’re all the same as they have been in previous years,” guard Kayla McBride said during media day Tuesday.

     
  • Rees leads Irish to 30-27 Shamrock win over ASU Oct 5, 2013 10:48 PM
    Tommy Rees threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns, and Notre Dame made it 5 for 5 in the traveling Shamrock Series with a 37-34 victory against No. 22 Arizona State on Saturday night. Kyle Brindza kicked three second-half field goals, the go-ahead kick from 25 yards with 3:03 remaining.

  • Irish eyes on better days before facing Arizona St. Oct 4, 2013 4:21 PM
    Brian Kelly decided to show his Notre Dame players video clips of last year’s run to the BCS championship game. The coach wants the Irish to remember the winning ways of the better days, now that they have two losses and at least temporarily will have to settle for more modest goals. But Kelly is not worried about his players living in the past heading into Saturday night’s game against No. 22 Arizona State (3-1) in the Shamrock Series at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Notre Dame’s Atkinson answers call to run tougher Oct 3, 2013 4:52 PM
    Running back George Atkinson III cut left behind a block, burst through the hole, raced past an Oklahoma defensive back and ran untouched for an 80-yard touchdown. It was a highlight for Notre Dame last Saturday in what ended up being a loss. But the Fighting Irish coaches were happiest with his shorter runs: They have been on the 6-1, 220-pound junior all season, saying they wanted him to show more toughness.

     
  • Notre Dame still seeking balance on offense Oct 1, 2013 4:56 PM
    The drop-off in Notre Dame’s play on defense after carrying the Fighting Irish to the national championship game last season is perplexing to some. That’s not what’s bothering coach Brian Kelly. “Where we’re really pulling our hair out is trying to find that balance from an offensive standpoint," he said. "We’re going to play, I believe, well enough defensively to win the rest of our games.

     
  • Putrid start dooms Irish in loss to Oklahoma Sep 28, 2013 8:44 PM
    Blake Bell threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard in the fourth quarter and No. 14 Oklahoma jumped to a two-touchdown lead in the opening 3 minutes and beat No. 22 Notre Dame 35-21 on Saturday.

     
  • No. 22 Irish have owned series with No. 14 Sooners Sep 27, 2013 8:04 PM
    Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says he is focused on his 14th-ranked Sooners trying to beat No. 22 Notre Dame this season, not the fact that the Fighting Irish have won nine of the 10 games between two of college football’s most successful programs.

     
  • Notre Dame linebackers face Te’o comparisons Sep 26, 2013 4:42 PM
    At first glance, Notre Dame linebackers Jaylon Smith and Jarrett Grace don’t appear to have a lot in common other than being starters the 22nd-ranked Fighting Irish are counting on to help slow No. 14 Oklahoma’s offense. They have a common thread that binds them, though: inevitable comparisons to Manti Te’o.

     
  • No. 22 Notre Dame has knack for winning close ones Sep 24, 2013 5:47 PM
    Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly attributes the ability of the 22nd-ranked Fighting Irish (3-1) to finish games to tough-minded players. “I just think it happens over a period of time. When we first got here, I don’t believe that we were able to win some of those games. I think it’s just a matter of time,” Kelly said.

     
  • No. 22 Notre Dame downs Michigan State 17-13 Sep 21, 2013 9:17 PM
    Notre Dame took advantage of a trick play that backfired, as well as four pass interference calls and a holding penalty that kept drives alive, to defeat Michigan State for the third straight time. The mistakes led to all of Notre Dame's points in the 17-13 victory, including two on the game-winning drive after a pass by Michigan State receiver R.J. Shelton led to an interception by safety Matthias Farley, setting up the go-ahead touchdown.

     
  • Irish still seeking identity for Michigan St. game Sep 20, 2013 3:46 PM
    The once dominating Fighting Irish defense is meandering even with eight returning starters. The defense has given up one fewer point through three games (71) than it did through eight games (72) last season. Meanwhile, Michigan State has looked more like the Irish of last season than Notre Dame has, depending on the nation’s No. 1 defense to win games.

     
  • Daniels becoming a difference-maker for Notre Dame Sep 19, 2013 8:17 PM
    DaVaris Daniels led the Irish in yards per catch last season at 15.8 but averaged fewer than three catches a game. He began showing signs of what he could do, however, by having the longest catch for Notre Dame in five of the 11 games he played. “He’s one of those guys once in a while you have to light a fire under,” coach Brian Kelly said.

     
  • ND seeks to match longest home streak in 15 years Sep 17, 2013 4:50 PM
    No. 22 Notre Dame will be seeking to match its longest home winning streak in 15 years when it faces Michigan State on Saturday. Coach Brian Kelly put making the “House that Rockne Built” a difficult place to play again a priority after nearly a decade of mediocrity, and it appears to be working. The Irish have won nine straight at home, the longest such streak at the school since winning 10 straight under Bob Davie in 1997-98.

    A lot has changed since Nikolai Khabibulin played his last game for the Blackhawks in 2009. Back for a second tour of duty with the Hawks, the 40-year-old goaltender says one thing stands out above all else. Tim Sassone explains in this report from training camp in South Bend, Ind.

     
  • Irish, Boilers using rivalry as proving ground Sep 13, 2013 4:40 PM
    Purdue and Notre Dame are both looking for answers. They want more consistency out of their quarterbacks. They want to finish drives with touchdowns, not field goals. And, of course, they’re both trying to creep over the .500 mark after starting 1-1.

     
  • Carlisle emerging as Notre Dame’s top rusher Sep 12, 2013 5:03 PM
    Notre Dame running back Amir Carlisle got football tips from San Francisco 49ers back Frank Gore, Philadelphia Eagles back Brian Westbrook and other NFL players when he was growing up while his father was working as a strength coach for those teams. Gore, especially, gave Carlisle technical advice on what it takes to be a standout running back.

     
  • Hawks love first look at ND’s spectacular arena Sep 12, 2013 4:10 PM
    After the first day of Blackhawks training camp, it’s already clear who the star of the weekend will be. It’s the Compton Family Ice Arena, built in 2011 smack dab in the middle of campus. The $50 million state-of-the-art facility seats 5,022 and has all the bells and whistles. “What a place,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “Very impressive for the first time being here. Just walking in and looking at this beautiful facility, it’s amazing, a spectacular facility. We’re privileged and proud to be here."
