Brian Kelly anxious for Saturday

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly says his team is more than ready for Saturday's game against Texas. 

It has been about 26 practices for this Notre Dame team, according to the coach. And he says at this point he and his team are just ready to get out on the field and fight for a championship.  

"We're done practicing, we would like to play," said Kelly.

Kelly says he is most excited to see Malik Zaire at quarterback and KeiVarae Russell at cornerback.

No injuries were announced in his Thursday press conference.

Notre Dame opens the season against Texas Saturday night. Kickoff is at 7:42 p.m.
