Notre Dame will practice ten times between now and the 28th, with the Irish spending Christmas in New York, leaving South Bend on the 23rd.

    Ken Niumatalolo brings his Navy team to South Bend, trying to undo the past two years of Notre Dame domination after the Midshipmen’s best stretch in over 50 years.
