Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is putting a new spin on the team's pregame entrance.
Kelly said players will enter through the student section for pregame warmups this season, starting with Saturday's opener against Purdue.
"We want to do something unique, that's never happened before at Notre Dame," Kelly told the crowd at Friday's pep rally, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Receiver Michael Floyd and cornerback Darrin Walls were named captains for Saturday's game.
The Irish will name captains at every pep rally this season.
