Irish prepare for trip to Miami

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The wait is almost over with only a week away from the national championship.

The Notre Dame football team started practicing again right after Christmas and leave for Miami this week.

We caught up with some of the team after Saturday's practice.

"We have done a little bit of 11-on-11 work because I want to keep that speed that you need against a great team like Alabama," said Coach Brian Kelly.

"When we go down to Miami, it's not going to be a party or anything. It's going to be a focused trip," said Dan Fox, inside linebacker.

The Irish and the Crimson Tide will go head to head Jan. 7. The game kicks off at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
