Struggling Notre Dame football team falls to Navy


Brian Kelly is making a case for himself to be let go as coach of the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame fell to 3-6 on the season after expecting to compete for a national championship this year.

After beating Miami last week on a field goal near the end of the game, Notre Dame had hopes of salvaging the season.

Now, they will need to win the remainder of their games if they have hopes of becoming bowl eligible. Quarterback DeShone Kizer had a good game statistically, but again failed to lead the team to victory. He passed for 223 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

Meanwhile, Navy ran their way to victory.

The Midshipmen option attack was effective against the Notre Dame defense and Navy only attempted eight passes the entire game. Quarterback Will Worth ran for 175 yards on 28 attempts, scoring two touchdowns.

Brian Kelly, who led Notre Dame to a national championship game appearance in the 2012 season, has failed to duplicate that success in the season that have followed.

Notre Dame returns to action next weekend against the Army Black Knights as part of the Shamrock Series. The game will take place at 3:30 p.m. at the Alamodome in San Antonio on NBC. We will have to see if Kelly is feeling some extra pressure.
