Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis said he expects his team to be loose going into Saturday's showdown with No. 8 Pittsburgh.
"I think they are going in as an underdog, playing on the road. They have more reason to be loose then the other team does," Weis said. "The other team is a BCS contender, playing at the top of their game, they are 8-1, 5-0 at home, sold out stadium, night game, being on national TV. We've been on national TV plenty of times before. This isn't our first rodeo."
Sure sounds a lot like what Navy must have been feeling going into last Saturday's game when the Midshipmen upset the Irish 23-21.
