  • Not much at stake for Notre Dame now Nov 12, 2013 5:53 PM
    Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly isn’t worried about his team having a lack of motivation for the final two regular-season games.

  • Notre Dame’s Niklas is intimidating tight end Nov 7, 2013 8:45 PM
    Notre Dame tight end Troy Niklas is an intimidating figure at 6-foot-6 and 270 pounds and a physique so impressive former teammate Manti Te’o nicknamed him “Hercules.” Off the field, though, the mere mention of Niklas’ name brings a smile to teammates’ faces because of his offbeat character.

  • Notre Dame hangs on for 38-34 win over Navy Nov 2, 2013 6:53 PM
    Tarean Folston scored on a 1-yard plunge with 3:47 left and Notre Dame survived a back-and-forth game with Navy, holding on to beat the Midshipmen 38-34 Saturday. Navy had a chance to score late in the fourth quarter, but a bad pitch by Keenan Reynolds led to a 10-yard loss. Then on fourth-and-4 from the Notre Dame 31, Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith stopped an end-around by Shawn Lynch for no gain as the Irish avoided losing to Navy for the third time in the past five seasons. Tommy Rees threw touchdown passes to TJ Jones and Ben Koyack, George Atkinson III scored on a 41-yard run and Cam McDaniel added a TD. Reynolds rushed for three touchdowns for Navy (4-4) and passed for another. Notre Dame (7-2) improved to 11-1 in November in four seasons under Brian Kelly and clinched its fourth consecutive winning season, the first time that’s happened since 1995-98. The Irish also keep alive their hopes for a BCS bowl berth. Navy lost for the third time in the past four games. The final stop was one of the few times the Irish were able to do much to even slow Navy, which punted only twice and played a near flawless game as they had no turnovers and no penalties. Folston rushed for 144 yards on 18 carries, with 116 yards in the second half. He had rushed for only 116 yards before Saturday. Rees was 12-of-20 passing for 242 yards with two interceptions. It was the third time this season Rees has thrown at least two interceptions. The Irish lost the other two against Michigan and against Oklahoma, when Rees threw three. Reynolds completed six of nine passes for 88 yards, including two key passes that gave Navy its final lead. First he threw an 18-yard pass to Marcus Thomas to the Notre Dame 49. After three running plays, Reynolds then found a wide open Matt Aiken for a 34-yard score. Folston came up big for the Irish on the final drive, rushing for 51 yards on 10 carries before plunging in for the go-ahead score. Chris Swain led Navy with 85 yards Quinton Singleton had 77 yards. Navy gashed Notre Dame for 207 yards in the first half, which was more than it had in full games against the Irish the previous two seasons. In fact the Middies were on pace to top their best rushing game ever against the Irish, but couldn’t keep it up in the second half. Mistakes and penalties against Notre Dame allowed Navy to not only stay in the game, but lead 20-17 at halftime. A personal foul against defensive linemen Stephon Tuitt helped set up Navy’s first score to tie the game at 7-7 on a 2-yard run up the middle by Reynolds. Notre Dame appeared to take a 17-7 lead on a 16-yard TD run by Cam McDaniel, but the Irish were called for two holding penalties. Two plays later, receiver Jones fell and the pass by Rees was intercepted by safety Parrish Gaines at the 11. Reynolds had a 15-yard run on a third-and-3 play to keep the drive alive as Navy drove 77 yards on 10 plays to go ahead 14-10. The Irish responded quickly with a four-play scoring drive, with Rees throwing a 36-yard TD pass to Jones, who caught the ball at the 6 and ran in for the touchdown. Notre Dame appeared to stop Navy a yard shy of a first down when safety Matthias Farley knocked Reynolds out of bounds at the Navy 34-yard line. But defensive lineman Justin Utupo was called for unnecessary roughness to keep the drive alive. Before the game, the Blue Angles flew over Notre Dame Stadium twice. The Navy’s daredevil fighter jet pilots are scheduled to return to performing at air shows in 2014 after this year’s performances were canceled this spring because of budget cuts.

  • Rees playing well as Notre Dame prepares for Navy Nov 1, 2013 4:06 PM
    Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees has been making teams pay lately for challenging his arm.

  • Notre Dame 11-1 in November in last 3 seasons Oct 29, 2013 5:30 PM

The Fighting Irish have won their other 10 games in November during that span, a 90.9 winning percentage. It’s a better winning percentage for the month than Lou Holtz, Ara Parseghian, Frank Leahy and even Knute Rockne.

  • Army game a century ago put Notre Dame on map Oct 26, 2013 8:00 AM
    The birth of Notre Dame as a football powerhouse and the possibility of the pass as an offensive weapon came together on a cold, raw day in West Point a century ago before a crowd of 5,000 mostly Army fans.

  • Notre Dame QB Rees to start against Air Force Oct 22, 2013 12:48 PM
    Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said quarterback Tommy Rees has been cleared to play against Air Force after missing much of the second half against USC with a strained neck. Rees left the game with 9 minutes left in the third quarter after being sacked and the offense struggled without him as the Irish held on for a 14-10 victory against the Trojans. Kelly says he will monitor Rees in practice this week. Backup Andrew Hendrix was 0-for-4 passing as the offense floundered without Rees, who is completing 53 percent of his passes. Kelly says he is confident Hendrix will play better when he gets in a game again. He says Hendrix and freshman quarterback Malik Zaire will get more time at practice this week.

  • Rees throws for 2 TDs, Notre Dame beats USC 14-10 Oct 19, 2013 11:45 PM
    Tommy Rees threw two touchdowns before leaving the game with an injury and Notre Dame snapped a five-game home losing streak to USC with a 14-10 victory on Saturday night. Rees was 14 of 21 passing for 166 yards with TD throws to Troy Niklas and TJ Jones in the first half. Rees left the game when he was sacked by USC linebacker Lamar Dawson in the third quarter and didn’t return. USC managed just 121 total yards of offense in the second half. After converting both third-down conversions on their opening scoring drive, the Trojans went 0-of-11 the rest of the game. The Irish (5-2) beat the Trojans (4-3) for the third time in the past four games, after losing the previous eight straight, but won at home for the first time since Pete Carroll’s first year as USC coach in 2001. USC won last week in Ed Orgeron’s first game as interim coach following Lane Kiffin’s dismissal, but this is the earliest the Trojans have three losses since starting that 2001 season 2-5. In only the third night game at Notre Dame Stadium in the past two decades, there were mistakes and attrition by both teams. Marqise Lee, who sat out against Arizona with a sprained knee, had two catches for 18 yards in the first half but didn’t play in the second half. Silas Redd, the Penn State transfer who missed the first five games with a knee injury, got the bulk of the carries in the first half with leading rusher Tre Madden out with an injured hamstring, but had just two carries five yards in the third quarter. He finished with 19 carries for 112 yards. With Rees out, the Irish attempted just four more passes and none of them was close as the Irish could only muster 47 yards of offense in the second half. Cam McDaniel led the Irish rushing game with 92 yards on 18 carries. USC’s Cody Kessler was 20-of-34 passing with an interception, with Nelson Agholor catching six passes for 39 yards. USC also was hampered by 11 penalties for 95 yards and Andre Heidari missed field goals of 40 and 46 yards, leaving him 2-of-7 on field goals of 30 yards or more this season. Both teams squandered scoring opportunities in the first half. The USC defense was the first to come up big as safety Su’a Cravens was unblocked and tackled McDaniel for a 3-yard loss on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line. The Trojans responded with a 96-yard touchdown drive, with Redd rushing for 40 yards on six carries. The Irish tied the game on a 7-yard scoring pass from Rees to Niklas, his fifth touchdown catch of the season, tying him for second with Tyler Eifert in 2011 and Ken MacAfee in 1975 for scoring catches in a season by a tight end. The Trojans blew a chance to take a lead when Heidari missed a 40-yard attempt wide right early in the second quarter. Agholor returned a 47-yard punt by Notre Dame 48 yards to the Notre Dame 25, with another five yards added on because Notre Dame lined up in an illegal formation on the punt. But after Kessler threw an 11-yard pass to Lee, the Trojans had to settle for a 22-yard field goal. The Irish took the lead with a 91-yard drive on five plays, highlighted by two runs by McDaniel. On the first, he started right and cutback left for a 24-yard spinning run to the Notre Dame 41. After an incomplete pass, McDaniel cut left again for a career-long 36-yard run to the 11. Jones, who was shaken up two plays earlier, then caught an 11-yard TD pass to give the Irish their first halftime lead at home against USC since the “Bush Push” game in 2005. Notre Dame running back Amir Carlisle, who played as a kick returner for the Trojans against Notre Dame two years ago, is believed to be just the second person to play on both sides of the rivalry. The other was Speedy Hart, who played for Notre Dame in the “Green Jersey Game” in 1977 and for USC in 1980. Carlile finished with three carries for 12 yards.

  • 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. Yup, it’s been that long since the Irish posted consecutive victories over the Trojans, and beat them at home.

  • Irish enter unfamiliar ACC with familiar goals Oct 8, 2013 8:02 PM

  • Rees leads Irish to 30-27 Shamrock win over ASU Oct 5, 2013 10:48 PM

Kyle Brindza kicked three second-half field goals, the go-ahead kick from 25 yards with 3:03 remaining.
