Back to basics for No. 9 Irish in home finale against Navy

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) For No. 9 Notre Dame, Saturday's game against long-time rival Navy is about basics training.

After committing four turnovers and not getting any of their own in a humbling, 41-8 loss at Miami, the Fighting Irish (8-2, No. 8 CFP) host a Navy team that does two basics better than anyone else in college football: They rush the ball for 369.8 yards per game and they keep it an average of 35:47.

Besides its proficient triple-option attack, Navy (6-3) brings a discipline that Notre Dame will need to emulate in cold, rainy conditions expected for the schools' 91st consecutive meeting dating to 1927. Finishing off drives with points, something Notre Dame did just once against the Hurricanes, is a must against the Midshipmen.
