NOTRE DAME – The Fighting Irish beat Air Force on Saturday, 59-33. This marks Notre Dame’s fourth win in a row on the season.
“We played very good offensive football. We started off fast. Michael Floyd set the table for us early on,” said Head Coach Brian Kelly.
For Andrew Hendrix, it was the first time he has ever played in a game as the Notre Dame Quarterback. But he said he was ready.
“I think that the preparation that I had at practice this week I was really comfortable with my package so I just had to go out there and do it. Honestly I didn’t feel any jitters at all I was just anxious to get out there and show what I could do,” said Hendrix.
Next week is a bye week for the Irish, but players said you don’t need to worry about them losing their momentum.
“I really don’t think the momentum that we have at this point is going to stop or reverse. I just think we’re getting better week bye week,” said Safety Harrison Smith.
During the bye week the team still plan to focus and that’s on USC.
“There’s not really much break. We’ll have practices and we’ll just get ready for the game plan and just keep moving forward,” said Quarterback Tommy Rees.
Notre Dame plays next at home October 22 at 7:30 p.m. against USC.
