  • Notebook: Injuries mean bye a time to heal
    INDIANAPOLIS – Notre Dame may be 3-0, but coach Brian Kelly said the upcoming bye week is a welcome sight since he has such a banged-up team.

Notre Dame dominates

Notre Dame went into its bye week in style.

The Irish dominated Air Force in a 59-33 win as they closed the first half of the season on a four-game winning streak. It was the most points by the Irish since Lou Holtz's last game with the program, a 62-0 home win over Rutgers in 1996.

Notre Dame scored on all six of its possessions in the first half and cruised to a 4-2 record after six weeks.

The Irish unveiled a new offensive wrinkle, employing a package with sophomore Andrew Hendrix at quarterback, and freshman defensive end Aaron Lynch made his first start with senior end Ethan Johnson sidelined by an ankle injury.
